With the Champions League knockout phase now upon us, the football world has been talking about the clubs still in the competition and in England that talk has obviously been focused upon Arsenal and the other two sides left among the elite of Europe. "They were outclassed, outplayed".

Arsene Wenger is once again under pressure to end Arsenal's Champions League last-16 misery as the Gunners travel to bogey team Bayern Munich in Wednesday's first leg.

It's hard to imagine Arsenal without Wenger on the touchline, but that is something that edges closer and closer to becoming a reality. Can he overcome this latest setback?

The BBC reported yesterday, without citing sources, that Wenger's future will be decided at the end of the season.

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown told BT Sport he felt for his former manager.

"It's nearly embarrassing. Outclassed, outplayed", he said.

Saunders recalled his experiences playing against Vieira and said under-fire Arsene Wenger is in need of a similar player to whip his team into shape at precious moments.

"We have said it before and we keep repeating ourselves about a lack of leaders, lack of desire, but I have to say that in at this level, they are not good enough".

The Gunners are confident for the Allianz Arena leg with the return in London on March 7.

Wenger will face the press on Tuesday evening and is expected to "respond to speculation that Mesut Ozil's place in the team is at risk after admitting the club's record signing is low on confidence", says the paper.

"They're not doing themselves or him justice". Munich had teased Arsenal with a few early passes in behind the midfield duo of Granit Xhaka and Francis Coquelin, as the visitors, who pressed high, were quickly pinned back, defending around their own box, suffocating in a Bavarian stranglehold.

How did the papers react?

"I think Madrid played their best game in three months, while we were not at our best tonight - We can compete with them if we play our best football". Is it time for a change at the Arsenal helm? Be grateful for what you've had Gooners because you won't find a better manager than him prepared to come to Arsenal. "It's Champions League and the opponents are always better".

"I don't know why they have lost, it won't be a psychological barrier, and besides, if there is one, they will want to move forward from it with this game", said Ancelotti.

But Ancelotti will be relieved his side showed what it is capable of after five unconvincing games since the winter break, when Bayern faced criticism for looking exhausted and lacking the dominance it displayed at the start of the season.
