By Dominic Toner
Arsenal have made four changes to their starting XI for the Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
The Gunners host Bayern at the Emirates Stadium in the last-16 second-leg European tie.
The north London club are trailing 5-1 from the first-leg and it will take a colossal upset to progress to the next round.
Arsene Wenger has decided to make four alterations to his side from the team that lost 3-1 to Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.
David Ospina, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez have come into the side.

Arsenal are very likely to be dumped out of the Champions League last-16 for another year and the club’s supporters have become used to the similar story.
They managed to ease through the group stages of the competition, but were blown away by European heavyweights at the Allianz Stadium.
The Gunners will be hoping they can restore some pride against Carlo Ancelotti’s side and a couple of early goals in their favour could ignite a glimmer of hope.
Wenger’s side will also be looking to get back in the fans’ good books after the away defeat to Anfield and prove they can deliver in the big games.
