The runaway Bundesliga leaders, who are unbeaten in 19 matches in all competitions, dominated in a 3-1 win in their last 16 first leg at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

Bayern are now being backed among the strong favourites to go all the way in the Champions League and Heynckes was more than happy with the win over Arsenal.

He said: "Arsenal allowed us a few things in their defence but we are in astonishing form and can punish even the smallest mistakes of the opponent.

"At times it was quite difficult for us, we had to work hard but even when they were putting pressure on us, we coped well."

Heynckes' side finished as Champions League runners-up to Chelsea last season, and despite their advantage in this tie, he is not taking anything for granted.

"You cannot afford to underestimate an opponent, because in football, we have seen everything," he said.

"But in this season it is very difficult against us, you can see that with our position in the league, conceding just seven goals, that is amazing.

"We are also in a position to score, so we have a good chance to progress.

"But if we were to progress, Arsenal can still have options in the Premier League to make the Champions League, the team has potential and class."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
