Robin van Persie and Andrey Arshavin struck in the second half as Arsenal staged a brilliant late comeback to give them hope of progressing in the Champions League with a 2-1 win over Barcelona.

David Villa fired competition favourites Barcelona ahead in the first half after combining with Lionel Messi.
