Arsenal fans, welcome back for another dose of breaking news.

It’s time again for your daily round-up, so you’ll all know the score by now. If you don’t then there’s no reason to worry, simply watch the video above or scroll down for more.

We’ve got plenty on offer today so leave thoughts and comments in the box provided. We know, we’re too good to you.

Wenger's Lewandowski plan

You’re probably fretting over how to stop Robert Lewandowski. Well, worry no more as Arsene Wenger has a plan to halt the Polish striker in his tracks tonight.

So far this term Lewandowski has scored 16 goals in 11 club appearances and heading into tonight’s Champions League fixture at the Emirates Stadium he looks to be in lethal form.

However, Wenger said that a shrewd approach could stop the 27-year-old and that Arsenal keeping possession of the ball would ultimately be the best way to limit his effectiveness.

"First of all the best way to combat him is for us to have the ball," Wenger said.

"After that you have to be shrewd with him because inside the box he is outstanding, because of his technique, his finishing, his movement inside the box.

"That’s where we need the experience of Mertesacker and Koscielny to deal with that because that will be one of the important things on the night."

Since Wenger’s men are already teetering on the edge of an early exit from Europe we won’t hold our breath, but anything could happen yet.

Muller: Arsenal might be favourites

Meanwhile, Bayern forward Thomas Muller has claimed Arsenal might even be favourites for tonight’s encounter, hailing them as having quality in their fold.

The Germany international is another one to watch tonight. Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny should certainly have their hands full in keeping Pep Guardiola's frontline quiet.

Neville on Cazorla

Our last headline comes from an altogether surprising character in Gary Neville. The Manchester United legend has never been a friend of Arsenal Football Club, but his latest comments certainly back the north London giants over his former team.

Neville said that Bastian Schweinsteiger had been treated ‘like a dog’ by Santi Cazorla during United’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Gunners earlier this month. Ouch.
