Arsene Wenger says that he’ll make changes for tomorrow night’s game against Montpellier in the Champions League but doesn’t want to upset the balance of his balance of his team.
Speaking at his pre-game press conference, the boss admitted players like Ramsey, Santos and Giroud could come into the team, but in no way was he underestimating the home side. “I have made some changes,” he said, “but I want to maintain a degree of continuity for this match.
“I think that Montpellier have kept the same group of players – they have just been unlucky in certain matches and perhaps they were waiting for the Champions League.
“It is possible that they could cut loose against us, but that is the type of match you get used to in the Champions League.”
The Arsenal manager begins his three match ban and says it’s an irritation not to be able to manage his team from pitch level.
“I’m frustrated not to be on the bench because that is where I am happiest, but we have discussed the different scenarios and will see what happens tomorrow.
“Arsenal have never lost to a French team in France and we will try to maintain that run tomorrow.”
