Draw With Hull Has Arsenal Fans Fearing The Worst Against Barcelona

Arsenal were held to a goalless draw in the FA Cup against Championship side Hull City, up next for the Gunners is a daunting tie against Barcelona.

An inspired performance from Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic kept the stars of Arsenal at bay, as a frustrated Arsene Wenger sent on Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the second half to no avail.

Three wins in eight games leaves the Gunners in middling form heading into Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 clash. In contrast, current holders Barcelona sit six points clear atop La Liga, and are currently romping through Europe on a 31 game unbeaten streak in all competitions.

Messrs. Suarez, Neymar and Messi have plundered 89 goals between them, with the Spanish giants winning three of the last five meetings between the two sides.

The Arsenal faithful are justifiably worried about facing the MSN trio in particular.

The Gunners will be hoping to channel their superb win over Barca in 2001 at the same stage of club football’s most prestigious competition.
