Arsene Wenger admits he’s thinking of ‘one or two’ changes for tomorrow night’s Champions League game with Bayern Munich, and that Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil could be the players to miss out.
The Chilean has been carrying an injury as we know, and played 79 minutes in the 3-0 win over Watford after two tough international games. Ozil was withdrawn at the same time, having notched up a couple of assists, and with Everton on the Premier League horizon the Arsenal manager is considering whether to use them or not against the Germans.
“I could rest a little bit Ozil and Sanchez,” he said, “and we have of course to put pace into this game and play against a big team, but we know we have proved ourselves in the Champions League.
“We want to make something special against Bayern Munich as it is the only way we can keep in the race.
“I will have to see how we prepare for this game now and decide what we really want to do. The confidence level is there, the required result is there as well – we know exactly what is needed; a 0-0 is not even a good result.
“To score goals, we have to attack.”
And to score goals against Bayern Munich, you’d posit that we need Alexis and Ozil. Anyway, we should find out more from the boss later when he meets the press ahead of the game.
