Ahead of our London derby with Chelsea, Arsène Wenger sat down with Arsenal TV Online for his only exclusive pre-match interview.

The manager looked back on his team's Champions League exit before turning his attention to Sunday's game at Emirates Stadium.

He discussed:

  • the ‘11-minute game’ against Manchester United
  • the crowd on the night
  • his chat with Kieran Gibbs
  • the other Semi-Final
  • the merits of a Barcelona v Manchester United Final
  • the 'third place play-off' between Chelsea and Arsenal
  • Hiddink’s tactics against Barca
  • the effect of those midweek defeats on both sides
  • his immediate thoughts about strengthening in the summer
