Arsène Wenger is “convinced” that the Arsenal supporters can create a red-hot Emirates Stadium atmosphere for tomorrow’s Champions League Quarter-Final second leg against Villarreal.

With nothing to choose between the sides after a 1-1 draw at El Madrigal Stadium last week, Wednesday’s clash promises to be just as tight.

And, speaking at Tuesday’s pre-match press conference, Wenger urged Arsenal’s ‘12th man’ to uphold the English reputation and crank up the volume for the clash.

“I would want an intimidating atmosphere and I count on our supporters to be strongly behind the team in a fair way,” said the manager. 

“England has a reputation abroad that the fans really have a strong voice behind the team.

“I am convinced our fans will do that tomorrow.”
