Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has vowed his men will take the game to and attack Bayern Munich, when they welcome the team on Tuesday in a UCL clash.
Bayern have had a dominating start to the champions league and domestic league, winning all competitions to date, whereas Arsenal are yet to record a win in the champions league.
But this will not deter Wenger, who insists Arsenal will attack a team that’s well know for its attacking prowess.
“We’re on a perfect run in the Premier League, and on the other hand it was perfect preparation for Bayern because we had no injuries and got the three points,” Wenger said following the 3-0 win at Watford at the weekend.
“We are now in a position where we can really focus and give it everything on Tuesday night. I will have to see how we prepare for this game now and how we want to approach it.
“The confidence is there, the required result is there and we know exactly what is needed. Even a 0-0 draw is not good enough, so to score goals we will have to attack.
“If you can arrange for us to be 3-0 in 20 minutes, like we were against Manchester United, I will put you in charge for Tuesday night.
“That would be ideal, but it is difficult to plan [that] – we did not plan to be 3-0 [up] after 20 minutes against United.
“What we want to do is to play up to our level because that is what is needed against a big team.
“It is true that we have won before in Europe when everyone else thought it was not possible, but we want to do it again because we felt the pain was inflicted by ourselves.
“Maybe, subconsciously, we thought, ‘Anyway, we will win these’ [against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos] – now, to correct it, we need a great performance.”
