Wenger – If Chelsea can do it then so can Arsenal!

Chelsea surprisingly won last years Champions League Final against Bayern Numich after (even more surprisingly!) beating Barcelona in the semis, and Arsene Wenger certainly believes that Arsenal can emulate their local neighbours by beating the German League leaders in the Knockout Stages of the same compeition.

Wenger said on Arsenal.com: “It is a big challenge, but I believe we can do it,” .

“They have played in two of the last three finals. But now Chelsea have been knocked out, who won the European Cup, in the group stage, so why should we not kick out Bayern if we put in good performances and have everybody available? I think we have a chance to do it.
