Arsenal: Could not have been handed a tougher draw, according to the odds

Premier League leaders Arsenal are the biggest drifters in the Champions League outright market after being pitted with holders and favourites Bayern Munich in Monday's draw.

The Gunners were 16/1 after settling for second place in Group F last week, but are now out to 28/1 with the Bundesliga champions unmoved at 5/2.

Manchester City were also dealt a major blow as they're up against Barcelona, with City drifting from 14/1 out to 16/1, though the Catalan giants have also lengthened from 9/2 to 5/1.

That puts fierce rivals Real Madrid ahead of Barcelona in the pecking order as they're now 9/2 second favourites having earned a favourable tie with Schalke.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have looked a different side in Europe this season and they've actually shortened from 16/1 to 14/1 as they're expected to oust Olympiacos.

Chelsea will face former striker Didier Drogba's Galatasaray outfit and have come in to 12/1 from 14/1 as they're odds-on (1/4) to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Sky Bet's Dale Tempest said: "The tie of the round has to be Manchester City against Barcelona, in what will be a huge test for both managers.

"We can't separate the sides in the betting on the first leg at the Etihad Stadium with both priced 8/5 for the win, though Barcelona are 2/5 to progress overall."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
