Pires Henry Penalty Discussion

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

Arsenal have stepped up their preparations for Tuesday’s Champions League tie against AS Monaco.

The Gunners were training hard on Monday on the eve of the second leg of the last-16 tie at Stade Louis II in Monaco.

Arsene Wenger’s side have a huge task ahead of them, as they have to score at least three goals to stand a chance of progressing to the quarter-finals of Europe’s premier club competition.

That’s because Arsenal lost the first leg of the last-16 tie 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium in North London.

It was one of the Gunners’ worst performances of the season, and they will be determined to stage what would be a stunning comeback in the second leg.

The Arsenal players were training hard at London Colney on Monday, and among the first-team stars was a club great.

Robert Pires was caught on camera training with the Arsenal players. The former France international attacker was on the books of the North London outfit from 2000 to 2006, and won the Premier League twice.

Perhaps Pires gave the current Arsenal stars come advice on how to stage a comeback against Monaco...
