Arsenal were preparing themselves for another nightmare Champions League last 16 draw after finishing second in the group stages of the competition.
The Gunners have been pitted against Bayern Munich in the last two seasons, Barcelona the season before that and have been unable to reach the quarterfinals of the competition since 2010 because of their inability to win their group.
So it was much to everyone’s surprise when Arsenal were pitted in a somewhat easier tie against AS Monaco.
It will be a somewhat nostalgic tie for Arsene Wenger who will meet his former club competitively for the first time in his career.
There were some jubilant reactions from Arsenal fans to the tie, here’s how they and the rest of Twitter reacted:
