Arsenal had two pre-match observations to take some motivation from: Patrice Evra's claim that they are a "training ground team" who will win "no trophy, nothing", and Sir Alex Ferguson's claim in last night's programme notes that they are not as "lilywhite" as they seem. It was easy to imagine when Evra made his comments on Canal+ last week that Ferguson would have been irritated at the unnecessary source of inspiration but as Arsène Wenger's side went about their work you sensed that it had provoked rather than primed them.

A "different world" is what the much-travelled Arsène Wenger calls it, this far east of London, and the manager of tonight's opponents Shakhtar Donetsk believes that this geography causes problems for his team with referees. The vastly experienced Mircea Lucescu, who was in charge of the Romanian national side almost 30 years ago, will have the home fires burning against Arsenal after stoking the coals last night by claiming: "Fouls committed by 'grandees' and sides from eastern Europe are interpreted differently."
