Arsene Wenger claims he would snap your hand off if you offered him a point ahead of our trip to Bayern Munich this Wednesday night, but insists that we will be looking to attack whenever possible against the German giants, as reported by the Evening Standard.
We got the vital three points against Bayern last time out, with Wenger getting his tactics perfect at the Emirates. Taking all the points won’t be as vital this time around, but it would put us in a fantastic position to qualify if we can do it once again.
Wenger would love to share the spoils with the hosts, but believes it would be too difficult to defend for 90 minutes. He therefore claims we need to attack whenever possible, and look to inflict damage on the counter attack.
“I would sign today to take a point but to sit off Bayern,” Wenger said.
“But with their offensive quality, that would be difficult to maintain for 90 minutes.
“We have to relieve the pressure whenever we can and try to score goals. That is the structure of our team, to attack.

“If we set out our players only to defend then I don’t think we’ll be so efficient. We have to play every time we can.”
Bayern are unquestionably one of the best teams in Europe at the moment, and were arguably the in-form team before we beat them last time out. Beating them twice in a row will be a tall order, but we’re more than capable of doing so.
A win at the Allianz would blow things wide open in our group, and would give us a fantastic chance of not only qualifying, but potentially topping the group. We’d be level with Bayern Munich on points, with both teams having to play Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos.

Hopefully Wenger gets his tactics right once again, and we are able to make things really exciting heading into the final two games.
