Home Premier League Arsenal ‘A possible task’

‘A possible task’


Arsene Wenger insists that his Arsenal side have ‘drawn belief’ from previous comebacks as they attempt to overturn a 2-0 deficit away at Bayern Munich tonight. The Gunners appear to facing a massive task at The Allianz after The Germans claimed the 2-0 win in London last month, and Arsenal won’t be helped by the missing Jack Wilshere, who was injured on international duty last week.

Arsenal narrowly went out on away goals tp Bayern last season after losing the first leg 3-1, and Arsene Wenger believes that it is not impossible for his side can go one step further this time,

“It is a possible task, that is the important thing. My team has quality and ambition,” said Wenger, “History is important in our belief. We know we can do it, because we have already done it (before). The way to win is to produce a top level performance and turn up with quality and belief.”

The dismissal of keeper Wojciech Szczesny allowed Bayern to take a firm grip of the tie at The Emirates, heaping more pain on Arsenal as Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller got crucial away goals for the German side. Wenger was infuriated by the decision to send his keeper off, claiming Arjen Robben ‘made more of it’ , and called on referee for the game Svein Oddvar Moen to ‘keep an eye out for tricks’ in the second leg. 

“What we want is a good referee and the closer they are to the tough leagues, the better they are at detecting these tricks that players play. But that is the same for Bayern, because I talk about both my players and the Bayern players. Honestly, I never look at the referee before a game. I never have any preconvieved ideas.”

“Sometimes when referees have big experience it can help you get out of tricky situations.”
