Arsenal are out the Champions League. It was embarrassing to say the least, but let’s move on and focus on the next task at hand, and that’s the visit of this Saturday evening.

The now remains (once again) Arsenal’s only hope of acquiring silverware this season, and the game against could not come at a better time. No disrespect to the Non-League side, but it is the perfect game for Arsenal to bounce back from their last result against Bayern Munich in midweek. On paper, it is a straightforward, easy win for the Gunners, one that should see Arsene ’s side progress to the semi-final of the competition. However, football is a funny old game, and nothing is guaranteed.

Should Arsenal stumble against on Saturday evening and get knocked out of the quarter-final stage by the Non-League side then not only will the club suffer possibly the biggest upset in the competitions history that I can recall, but would surely have to stepdown, no questions asked.

Although it is looks a forgone conclusion and the right type of game for the to play after being embarrassed by Bayern, it could prove a nightmare scenario for and indeed the players should they not deliver what the fans expect.

The pressure has increased significantly on the players and, in particular, Wenger over recent weeks. A shock loss, or even a draw, will not go down well with the Arsenal faithful, even if they support the Frenchman.
