Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott looked in good shape as Arsenal trained ahead of their Champions League clash with Monaco on Wednesday night.

The Gunners host the Ligue 1 side at Emirates Stadium looking to take a step closer to the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite club competition.

Arsene Wenger confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that Jack Wilshere is the Gunners’ only fresh injury doubt ahead of the first leg of their last-16 clash, and the England midfielder did not train with his team-mates.

As Monaco coach, Wenger won the French league title in 1988 and the French Cup in 1991.

This is Arsenal’s 15th consecutive appearance in the last 16. However, Wenger’s men have lost at this stage in each of the last four seasons.

Arsenal’s last victory in the round of 16 was against Porto in 2009-10, since when they have suffered elimination against Barcelona (2010-11), AC Milan (2011/12) and Bayern Munich (2012-13 and 2013-14).

Here are some of the best pictures from Tuesday’s training session at London Colney.
