Arsene Wenger defends Champions League record

Bayern Munich eased 5-1 past Arsenal London after a dominating second-half performance with four goals in the fist leg of UEFA Champions League's last 16 on Wednesday.

He has been a shining light for Wenger this season, but after losing three of their last for matches, not least the thrashing at the Allianz Arena, the Gunners' season appears to be ripping apart at the seams once again.

Former Chelsea boss Ancelotti was speaking before Wednesday's Champions League last-16 first leg tie between the sides in Germany. If I said that I will make a decision in March or April, it is because I did not know.

In 2013, the Germans squeezed past the Gunners on away goals in the last 16 - 3-3 on aggregate - after Bayern's 3-1 win in London was cancelled out by Arsenal's 2-0 victory in Munich.

The 5-1 hammering to Bayern Munich in the Champions League didn't help matters at all.

"Even if I go, Arsenal will not win every single game in the future".

Bayern had a host of chances thereafter, first through Lewandowski, who struck the crossbar after rounding the 'keeper, then through Robben, who was blocked by Kieran Gibbs, illegally according to the Bayern players, who demanded a penalty.

However, the Bavarians have faced criticism over their performances under Carlo Ancelotti at times this season and Bayern failed to top their group in the pool stages.

Wenger acknowledges his side face a "massive" challenge. "I've never seen him like that before", Dixon, who played under Wenger for six years, told ITV Football.

Arsenal's central defenders were petrified as Bayern toyed with their victims, with much casualness and finesse, reducing a Champions League knockout game to a glorified training session.

" As long as you don't win everything, there is always something wrong".

"It's a massive challenge, but we are capable of dealing with it".

"If I said March/April, it is because I didn't know".

"Every game is a new battle but what I can see - I haven't seen a lot because it's hard to see a lot of games because we're playing all the time - but the thing I have seen a little bit, you can already see his handwriting, you know and that's for me something that is very positive".
