Arsenal continue their defence of the FA Cup with a home tie against lower division opposition in the fifth round but manager Arsene Wenger has promised the Gunners will not be taking Middlesbrough lightly.
Arsenal are close to reaching an agreement to sign Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina from Nice for a reported four million euros (£3.2million, $5.4million), the French club`s president confirmed on Sunday.
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is hopeful the team`s previous experience of tight Premier League run-ins can help them scrape four more ugly victories and another season of Champions League football.
Although Arsenal has got players with names as difficult to spell like Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski, it reportedly seems that even the clubs coaching staff do not know how to spell their own players` names.
Like Manchester City`s 0-2 defeat to Barcelona the other night at The Etihad Stadium, Gunners suffered a defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in pretty much the same fashion – first a red card, then a second half opener to be followed by a very late cup killer at the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger cut a frustrated figure after his 10-man Arsenal side suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich in their Champions League Round of 16 first-leg clash at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.
Holders Bayern Munich survived an early battering to beat 10-man Arsenal 2-0 on a night of high drama in the Champions League on Wednesday as both teams missed penalties and home goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was sent off.
