Europe's danger men: Pato
AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato
Arsenal are hardly a team of ageing stars, but they will face the youngest scorer in the history of Fifa competitions in AC Milan's Brazilian sensation Alexandre Pato.

Now 18 years old - he was only 17 when he broke Pele's record - Pato only officially became a Milan player on 3 January this year. He scored on his competitive debut against Napoli 10 days later.

South American football reporter Tim Vickery told BBC Sport: "Pato is extraordinarily talented and has more than lived up to the hype around him with a sensational start to his spell at Milan.

"A wonderfully fluent mover, cool finisher and dangerous in the air."
