I know every Arsenal player and fan would love to see the Gunners gain another emphatic win against Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but would you be happy if the team only got a draw in the Allianz Arena? Wenger suggests he would be happy with that when he told the Guardian: “I would sign today to take a point,”
But Le Prof then went on to say that the best way for Arsenal to defend is to keep on the attack! He continured: “To sit off Bayern, with their offensive quality, would be difficult to maintain for 90 minutes. We have to relieve the pressure whenever we can and try to score goals. That is our structure of the team, to attack. If you get our players to defend, then I do not think we will be so efficient. We have to play every time we can.”
In some ways we are probably better off that we are playing in Germany, as our away form has been impeccable. Wenger was very happy with our latest 3-0 win at Swansea. “It was impressive,” he said. “If you look at our away results since the start of the season, we have won at Crystal Palace and at Watford, who you can see from the latest result are a difficult team to beat, and also at Newcastle and again at Swansea – so overall it looks like the team has stabilised and is growing as a unit. So let’s grow even more.”
We are already at a fantastic level, but if we could even improve further (and maybe we will if Campbell gets up to speed) we will be even more awesome!
