Arsene Wenger has urged his side to deliver "a great performance" and get Arsenal's Champions League back on track on Tuesday night.

The Gunners lost their opening two Group F fixtures and now face a Bayern Munich side that has been in scintillating form this season.

Wenger believes Arsenal's domestic form has given them the perfect base for a crack at the Bundesliga giants - and he won't be content with a draw.

"The confidence level is there, the needed result is there as well – we know exactly what is required [because] a 0-0 is not even a good result. To score goals, we have to attack.

"It is true that [we have delivered big results] before, but we want to do it again because we feel a bit that the pain inflicted [in the Champions League] was a bit by ourselves. Maybe subconsciously we thought ‘anyway we will win these [first two games’.

"Now to correct that we need a great performance. What we want to do is play up to our level - that will be needed because we play against a big team."

Goals have not been a problem for Arsenal in the Premier League with three against Manchester United and Watford either side of the international break.

"For us it a perfect run in our Premier League, and on the other hand also perfect preparation for the Bayern game because we had no injuries and we got the three points," said Wenger. "We are now in a position where we can really focus and give everything on Tuesday night."
