Former Chelsea star Bolo Zenden writes off Arsenal's Champions League chances

The Gunners are on zero points from two games in Europe.

Former Chelsea and Liverpool man Bolo Zenden has written off Arsenal’s Champions League hopes.

The Dutchman was speaking to talkSPORT this week when the topic of Arsenal’s result against Olympiakos was brought up. Arsenal lost the game at The Emirates 3-2, much to the shock of fans. That followed an opening defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia and leaves Arsenal in dire straits.

With back-to-back games against Bayern Munich now to come many, including Zenden, doubt Arsenal will make it through.

He told talkSPORT:

“Arsenal have no chance.

”They are on no points after two games and, with the next two coming up being Bayern Munich, I don’t see it happening.

“After four games they might have no points. We’re not used to that it but it’s the likelihood after what we’ve seen. It’s not good for Arsenal and not good for English football.”

There is of course hope for Arsenal. Of the three teams Bayern face there is no doubt Arsenal are the most likely to steal a point or three from the German juggernaut.

Bayern should have little problem overcoming Olympiakos and Dinamo with ease. If Arsenal can get their act together for the return fixtures with the ‘minnows’ of the group then they might just manage to sneak into the next round – but by the skin of their teeth.
