Arsenal will take on AS Monaco in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie away from home on Tuesday.

Arsenal stepped up their preparations for the Champions League last-16 tie against AS Monaco on Monday.

The Gunners will take on the Ligue 1 out at the Stade Louis II in the second leg of the last-16 tie on Tuesday evening.

Arsene Wenger’s side have a huge task ahead of them and need to score at least three goals in Monaco to progress to the quarter-finals of Europe’s premier club competition.

Arsenal lost the first leg of the last-16 tie 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium in North London last month.

It was one of the Gunners’ worst performances of the season, and they were training hard on Monday as part of the preparations for what would be a stunning comeback.

One of the players who was training with the Arsenal first team was Harry Donovan, who is just 17 years of age.

Donovan is a midfielder who is known for his hard work and confidence on the ball. The teenager has an eye for a killer pass and can also score goals.

The youngster featured three times for the Arsenal Under-18 last season, having made his debut for the academy in the 2012-13 campaign.

Donovan is unlikely to make his first-team debut for Arsenal anytime soon, but it seems that he has made an impression on Wenger.

Training with the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil is only going to help Donovan in his development.
