Less than seven miles (as the crow flies) separate Arsenal and Chelsea Football Clubs, but last night’s Champions League action couldn’t put them further apart.

Jose Mourinho’s Blues went about bringing an end to their barren run without a win with a 2-1 victory over Dynamo Kiev.

Although the pressure is still likely to be on the Portuguese manager, his side’s Champions League campaign looks full of life.

The same cannot be said for Arsenal’s.

The Gunners were buoyed by their success over Bayern Munich at the Emirates, giving their fans hope of another shock.

It wasn’t to be though, as Pep Guardiola’s men gave the north London side a footballing lesson, running out 5-1 winners.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the action in Bavaria…

Bayern’s first half demolition that saw them 3-0 up at the break, with Arsenal managing just one shot on target. That prompted some bold comparisons…

Meanwhile, those helpful folks at WhoScored.com were on hand to let Gunners’ fans how much they were under the cosh…

However there was one thing to smile about for Arsenal fans in the opening 45 minutes, way back when the score was a none-too-embarrassing 1-0…

As the second half got underway things got worse before they got better for the Londoners. And as the fourth went in, it seemed it couldn’t get any worse…

It did, and despite Olivier Giroud’s classy goal…

…The Gunners succumbed to a 5-1 victory, leading some to give Wenger a nickname just like some of his Premier League contemporaries…

After the final whistle, images surfaced suggesting some Arsenal players knew just how many they would concede in Germany…


Others though used this image to perfectly sum up the evening for the Gunners’ boss…

In the end, it was simply “doing an Arsenal”…

Their Champions League campaign remains on the brink and the Europa League beckons, and for some high-profile fans, reinforcements are needed. And one man is willing to lend the club a helping hand…
