Per Mertesacker reveals 'tense' atmosphere at Arsenal training

Our tipster Andy Schooler previews Tuesday's Champions League last-16 second legs, including Arsenal v Bayern Munich and Napoli v Real Madrid.

Ozil, 28, missed Saturday's Premier League defeat to Liverpool with the club confirming prior to kick-off he had been left in London to recover from illness.

Arsenal F.C. just lost to Liverpool F.C. on Saturday by a score of 3-1.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger interjected a question posed to Per Mertesacker on the Frenchman's future on Monday afternoon.

"We haven't competed a lot in recent games, we need to turn that around". As usual, Robert Lewandowski is carrying the fight in attack - the Polish striker has scored seven goals in his last five games. Sanchez and Wenger appear to have now shelved their differences, so I would expect him to start. In the 2003-04 season, when he was coach of AC Milan, his team took a 4-1 lead over Deportivo La Coruna in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal - played at home. "But now I think those experiences will be good to help me avoid this kind of problem from happening again".

The following year Arsenal moved to the Emirates stadium, and were told by chief executive Ivan Gazidis that they moved to the Emirates to grow as a club, and to grow into a team similar to the stature of Bayern Munich.

It is a dubious distinction, but now, laying claim to the title of the "biggest club never to win the Champions League" is just about all Arsenal have got when it comes to asserting their credentials as a member of Europe's elite.

But what really makes me think that run will continue is the state of the tie.

Bayern beat Arsenal 5-1 in the first leg of the series in Munich.

Bayern ended up losing that match 3-2 in Russian Federation. A struggling Arsenal side will always be tough to play no matter the situation. "I have since analysed the match like I have never done with any other game".

Captain Philipp Lahm said Bayern will look to kill off Arsenal's lingering hopes early.

"Lot of circumstances came together at the same time - from individual errors to things to personal things that cannot be made public".
