Wenger: We Need Away goal

Arsene Wenger says it's vital that Arsenal get an away goal when they play PSV on Tuesday.

It was an away goal that saw Arsenal through from this round last season after Thierry Henry scored a fantastic solo goal in Madrid.

Arsenal should go into the game full of confidence, they are unbeaten in 2007 and have never lost to the Dutch outfit.

Speaking at his pre-match press confrence Wenger said: 'The Champions League is a special situation. We need to score away from home and focus for both legs.

Le Boss also came as close as he ever will to publicly criticizing his team, claiming that they would not get away with playing against PSV the way they did against Blackburn.

'We cannot play at the same pace we did against Blackburn when we play PSV.'

An away goal is vital! This is a game where we must take our chances which has been a failing of ours this season. Lets scare the **** out of the rest of Europe!

I'll be looking for a good result against psv before worrying about winning the CL. I was bricking it pre-real last year, and refused to believe we'd get to the final, as it seemed a dream too far. Let's have a positive resumption to our cl campaign, and hopefully the team will get into the groove again, with the knowledge that they've done it once, they can do it again... »»Arsene Knows««
