Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will need to spend in the summer to enhance the clubs chances of competing in the latter stages of the Champions League, according to Nigel Winterburn. The Gunners were beaten 2-0 by Barcelona at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday in the first-leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, leaving Wengers side with a huge uphill task in their bid to secure a quarter-final berth. Arsenal have not progressed past the last-16 stage of Europes elite competition since 2010 and Winterburn feels his former club must invest in the playing squad to stand any chance of progressing further in the competition in the future. Alexis Sanchez failed to find the back of the net against his former club at the Emirates Stadium You could sense from Arsene Wengers interview that he felt Arsenal had wasted an opportunity last night, the former Arsenal defender told Sky Sports News HQ. Its easy to analyse after a game and say if wed had a 20-goal-a-season striker, would he have taken those chances, [but] we just dont know that.

Lionel Messi scored twice to give Barcelona a two goal first-leg advantage Arsenal will now turn their attentions back to the Premier League title race and their clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 1pm. Despite giving his backing to Wenger, Winterburn fully expects Arsenals performance to be scrutinised if they fail to pick up a victory over an under-achieving United team. Louis van Gaal is under pressure with speculation that he will be leaving at the end of the season, Winterburn added. Wenger believes Arsenal could have beaten Barcelona in their Champions League last-16 first leg From Arsenals point of view, people are going to be scrutinising to see where they sit in the title race and if Arsenal dont win a game, there will be a lot of analysis. Arsenal are in a new period, from last season to next season and the end of Weners contract. There is money at the club and they expect Arsenal to challenge for the title.
