Arsenal 0-0 Fenerbahce Highlights
Arsenal were held at home by Fenerbahce after missing several early chances in their Champions League Group G clash.
The Gunners were dominant and went close when Robin van Persie prodded his shot wide from Cesc Fabregas’s pass.
Van Persie saw another goalbound shot blocked before his fierce effort was tipped on to the bar by Volkan Demirel.
In the second half, Van Persie headed over when well placed but, although Arsenal enjoyed all the possession, they ran out of ideas before the end.
In contrast to their disappointing league results in recent weeks, Arsenal’s European form has been impressive – particularly when they dismantled Fenerbahce to claim a thumping win in Turkey a fortnight ago.
So the chance to seal their progress to the knockout stages should have offered a welcome distraction from domestic matters but, instead, the build-up to this game was dominated by the fall-out of Saturday’s defeat by Stoke, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger having to insist in a pre-match press conference that his side do not lack the stomach for a fight.
