Ancelotti sympathises with under-fire Wenger

Arsene-Wenger4

Arsene Wenger refused to offer any assurances that Sanchez would return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game, in which his Arsenal side must overturn a 5-1 deficit, something which has never been achieved in European Cup history.

A better showing against Bayern would restore some pride, at least, though it will prove of little consolation to supporters watching Arsenal's campaign play out in the same way it has year after year for quite some time. Ahead of their matches in the UEFA Champions League this week, the coaches of both clubs have preferred staying positive.

Arsene Wenger, who is in his 21st season as Arsenal's manager, has once again come under fire after delivering similar results in recent years. Barca crushed Sporting Gijon 6-1 earlier this month and then followed it up with a 5-0 drubbing of Celta de Vigo.

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

Memorable victories over Real Madrid, Juventus and Villarreal had carried Arsenal to the final as Wenger deployed a cagey gameplan at odds with his purist principles.

The alleged attack occurred this week in eastern Mosul, an area declared fully liberated by Iraqi forces in January. Many civilians were able to use the cover of battle to flee the Isis-controlled areas towards Iraqi special forces.

Arsenal are in real trouble and with the issues they are having with the likes of Alexis Sanchez of the field is going to make things hard.

Asked what sort of XI he would start with at the Emirates given Bayern's advantage, Ancelotti made it clear he is looking to kick on from the initial bout.

But deep down the 67-year-old knows Arsenal simply haven't been good enough to make the grade in Europe - and increasingly the same appears to be true domestically too. "Not just because of the goals but because of how we got them", said Barcelona manager Luis Enrique. "We collapsed", Wenger groaned after the latest heavy Bayern loss.

Unless Arsenal do manage to turn around their tie and progress to the next round, many among the Emirates faithful are likely to continue hoping this is Wenger's last season.
