Arsenal’s impending clash with Bayern Munich in the Champions League is edging closer and the boss insists that he’ll face the match in the same way as we faced United – at pace.

Our form in the Champions League so far has been… terrible. It’s been horrendous. We lost 2-1 away to Dinamo Zagreb and then got humiliated 3-2 by Olympiacos at home. Therefore, not many will be feeling too confident going into our match against the German giants.

As they say though, it’s the hope that kills you, and after an incredible opening 20 minutes against Man United in the Premier League in which we went 3-0 up, that hope has well and truly been restored.

The boss recently divulged his game plan for the Bundesliga team, claiming that we’re going to do exactly the same and go for the jugular early on.

“First of all, [how to beat Bayern is] by doing exactly what we have done against Manchester United, playing at a huge pace and by playing with the same belief and by not letting them dictate the game,” Wenger said.

“Bayern likes to have the ball, they like to get you back and so we have to win the ball well and be very well-organised and to use our opportunities to go forward with the maximum pace.”

Well, you know, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
