Arsenal succumbed to another defeat, this time to Greek champions Olympiakos, to compound a miserable start to the month of December.

They took the lead through Tomas Rosicky's smart finish just before half time, but were pegged back twice late on in the second.

Defensive frailties reared its ugly head for the makeshift back line as Maniatis and Mitroglou scored two goals that could have been avoided.

It leaves the Gunners in second place in Group B, meaning they'll face a group winner in the first round of the knockout stages in February.
