Boss - We need a very clear charge

 By Lloyd Webb

Arsene Wenger says his side will need to take the game to Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 fixture.

The Gunners travel to the Nou Camp needing to turn around a two-goal deficit after Lionel Messi scored twice at Emirates Stadium in February.

"We got caught on the counter-attack at a moment where we looked to be on top of the game"

Arsenal are still in search of their first win at Barcelona and Wenger says his side will need to be at their best if they are to achieve it.

“We are in a position where we need to score two or three goals,” he said. “That demands a very [clear charge].

"We know that we need to attack and take the game to them.

"I felt that our approach [in the first leg] was not so bad. We lost our balance a bit just after half-time.

"We got caught on the counter-attack at a moment where we looked to be on top of the game, so we are in a position where I don’t think we have to think too much."
