Manuel Neuer produced one of the best saves in Champions League history to deny Theo Walcott in the first half at The Emirates.

With the game goalless after a strong start from the away side, Walcott had the chance to break the deadlock with a close-range header.

However, the Germany international somehow managed to claw the Arsenal striker’s effort to safety to prevent the Gunners from taking a vital lead in the Champions League clash.
