Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says Arsenal will go into their Champiosn League second leg against Bayern Munich full of belief that they can still qualify for the quarter-finals.
The Gunners have it all to do at the Allianz Arena on March 11 after Wednesday's 2-0 defeat at Emirates Stadium.
But the 20-year-old says the team will be confident of repeating last year's result in Munich.
"I think we surprised them in a sense how positive we were and how much we came at them"
"It's never over in this game and we're going to go there with belief that we can do it,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal Player. "This time last year we lost 3-1 here and we went there and we won 2-0. We can take confidence from that.
"Obviously 2-0 is not what we wanted. I thought we started the game really well, came out the traps and I think we surprised them with our start. But then obviously to go down to 10 men makes it a tough road from there on in."
Arsene Wenger's side began the first leg with a high tempo andOxlade-Chamberlain believes that should set the benchmark for the rest ofthe season.
"I think we surprised them in a sense how positive we were and how much we came at them," he said. "That's what we need to do - play without fear.
"They [Bayern] always have respect wherever they go and we gave them that because they've got great individuals but we couldn't fear them or think we were second best to them."
