Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has called upon his players to produce something special ahead of their Champions League last 16 clash with Monaco on Tuesday, according to CaughtOffside.
The Gunners travel to the principality knowing that they have to score at least three times against a strong defensive side if they are to stand any chance of going through to the quarter-final stage of the competition, after they lost 3-1 in the first leg at the Emirates.
But Wenger is optimistic that his side can restore some pride.
“We have got it wrong in the first game. What you want in life is the chance to put it right. We have the opportunity to put it right and after, no matter what, we will be ready to give everything to do it,” he explained.
Arsenal go into this game on the back of an emphatic 3-0 victory over West Ham at the weekend. Their current run of thirteen wins in their fifteen games has taken them into the top four of the Premier League, and to the FA Cup semi-final, but it is the prospect of achieving Champions League glory that Wenger is most looking forward to.
“Honestly, I’d prefer to be 3-0 up [but] we have no choice. We have to put it right. Sometimes in life, you make a big mistake and there’s no comeback, no way you get the chance to put it right again. In football, you can do it so let’s just give everything,” he added.
