The Sun - FC Porto 2 Arsenal 0
EMMANUEL EBOUE got through a game of football without any major disasters — and without walking off the pitch in tears. But it was the 1,500 Arsenal diehards that rocked up in Portugal last night who must have felt like crying after shelling out to watch this rubbish.

The Daily Mirror - Arsenal lose to Porto to qualify second in their group
With his side already qualified for the last 16 and with several key men - like captain Cesc Fabregas and striker Robin van Persie - carrying injuries, manager Arsene Wenger felt confident enough to take a calculated gamble with his team selection against a well-organised Portuguese outfit, who had never lost here to an English side a European tie.

The Daily Mail - 'We didn't give 100%': Arsenal goalkeeper Almunia launches attack on his team-mates
Manuel Almunia launched a scathing attack on his Arsenal team-mates for their lack of effort against Porto on Wednesday night. The goalkeeper said: 'We were not aggressive, we were not into the game, we didn't pass the ball well at all, so we lost.”

The Daily Express - GUNNERS LOSE OUT ON TOP SPOT
Below-par Arsenal slumped to a 2-0 defeat at Porto on Wednesday night to leave themselves with a tougher path towards Champions League glory.

The Times - Porto sent feeble Arsenal crashing to another defeat
Arsenal lost for the seventh time this season last night and it was not all Emmanuel Eboué’s fault. The Ivory Coast defender was targeted for abuse by his own supporters in the victory over Wigan Athletic at the Emirates Stadium at the weekend, but Arsenal played so poorly against the Portuguese champions last night that real questions have to be asked again about whether Arsène Wenger’s team have the strength in depth to avoid a fourth successive season without silverware.

The Independent Arsenal fail to fire and now face tough road to Rome
Below-par Arsenal slumped to defeat last night to leave themselves with a tougher path towards Champions League glory. 

The Daily Telegraph - Uninspired Arsenal outplayed by Porto
Arsenal’s inability to raise their game in matches they are expected to win manifested itself in Portugal last night. And the defeat means that Arsenal, previously unbeaten in Europe and having beaten Porto 4-0 in North London, finished as runners-up to the Portuguese.

The Guardian - Porto pounce on stuttering Arsenal
Arsène Wenger could be forgiven for hoping that Arsenal now draw one of Europe's big guns in the Champions League last 16. His players seem incapable of raising themselves unless the level of the opposition or the occasion demands it.
