Wojciech Szczesny's face nearly got very, very red. 

Arsenal face Besiktas in a crucial Champions League qualifier in Turkey, and their start was nearly a complete, embarrassing disaster. 

Demba Ba, a former Premier League adversary of Arsenal's, took the opening kick-off and lashed a shot from midfield that required a strong effort from Szczesny to keep the ball out of the net.
