Arsenal have only picked up two points in their last three outings – despite a decent performance in Europe.

The Gunners were completely out-classed by a free-flowing AC Milan, with goals from Robinho, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kevin Prince-Boateng, to leave Arsenal all but out of the Champions League.
While Szczesny admits that qualifying for the next round is an uphill task, he refuses to concede defeat just yet.
“It’s not impossible to come back but it’s going to be very difficult,” he told the club’s official website.
“Milan showed how good they are tonight and it’s going to be very difficult.
