Arsenal have had little luck in recent years, being drawn with Barcelona, Real Madrid and AC Milan when winning previous groups in the past, and they came second in their group after a 2-1 loss to Olympiakos last night.

The important thing now is to focus on the championship and get ourselves back in decent form.”
