Arsène Wenger says that Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Marseille will be a completely different game to the night at Stade Velodrome.

Arsenal took home a late victory from France two weeks ago to put themselves in command of Group F.

Wenger believes Marseille will feel more comfortable away from home, however, and has warned his side of the Ligue 1 team’s counter-attacking threat.

“I believe they have the team which certainly is more at ease away from home,” said Wenger.

“They are a side who can defend well with very physical and quick players on the break, so I believe that the counter attack suits them more than dominating the game.

“They have gained in confidence in between the two games like we have so it should be an interesting tie. But for us it's an opportunity to qualify and of course we want to take this chance.”
