  • The Independent's Sam Wallace...
    Let's put Saturday in perspective: cup shocks do happen, even those at home to Championship teams. Arsenal were a bit unlucky on the day. Unbeaten in five before Saturday, they are unpredictable. They might even beat Bayern Munich tomorrow.

  • Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere...
    Chelsea weren't having a good season and they got a bit lucky in some games but showed great character. We need to do that. We need to come together as a team.

  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger...
    We know what Bayern are capable of and they've got a great team. It's not ideal to go into a game like that after the loss today (against Blackburn in the FA Cup) but we have to show our character now.

    We've beaten big European teams here before so we need to do that again. We need a good defensive display and then we need to counter them well. They've got a good defensive unit as well so it's going to be an interesting game and we look forward to it now.

  • Wenger CL press conference, on team's reaction to Saturday: 'You cannot compare the Champions League with the FA Cup'
  • Wenger sells Van Persie, plays Gervinho and says his team selection is great and it's all the players fault. This man is incompetent and should be fired.

  • BREAKING: Sergio Ramos has agreed to join Arsenal, after dropping Copa Del Ray last year he never wants to be in a position to hold a trophy
  • To place a bet on arsenal winning the champions league or not!? #KeepTheFaith
  • There is no way arsenal can win i'm guessing 3-1 would be the score although that's being conservative
