Wenger - Bayern are best in the world

Arsene Wenger considers Bayern Munich to be among the “best in the world” - but remains confident Arsenal can beat them.

The Gunners need to win Tuesday night’s Champions League Group F fixture, having lost to Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos this season.

Bayern won the competition in 2013 and, having faced the German giants twice in the past three seasons, Wenger is aware of the challenge facing his side.



“[But] there is no team without weaknesses. If you ask me to come out with them then I would not especially do that but there is no team without weaknesses.

“What we want is to win the game. We want to defend well, attack well and score the first goal - that is massively important in the big games.

“You can never promise you will score three goals in 20 minutes [like against Manchester United] because that would be absolutely crazy. What we can do is start in a strong way and that is what we will try to do.

“We know we play against a top side. We prepared well against Zagreb, we prepared well against Olympiacos but [that was] between two Premier League games where we had to give a lot.

“We won 5-2 at Leicester, three days later we played against Olympiacos. On top of that things went against us. But on Tuesday everyone will be highly focused.”
