Prince Albert II of Monaco, who was in north London to witness the principality club's 3-1 triumph, was surprised and thrilled by the result.

"It's a historic night. Everything went wonderfully. We saw a very determined, well-organised AS Monaco side," he told the Ligue 1 club's website.

"I never thought that one day I'd see the scoreboard at the Emirates Stadium read 3-1 to AS Monaco. It's the kind of game that gives you hope for the end of the season and for the future."


Video: Former Liverpool man 'nibbles' on defender

Did Luis Suarez have a little nibble on Man City defender Martín Demichelis' hand during last night's Champions League encounter?

Watch the former Liverpool man, now playing for Barcelona, run alongside Demichelis on the edge of the area in the video above, where he appears to move his mouth in the direction of the Argentine's hand.

The Urguguayan was handed a four month ban from football after biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during last summer's World Cup, and has been also caught up in biting controversies during his time at Liverpool and Ajax.
