Arsene Wenger is adamant that Arsenal still have a fighting chance as they attempt to knock out Bayern Munich from the Uefa Champions League in Germany.

The Gunners will need nothing short of a masterclass display to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit inflicted by Bayern back at the Emirates.

England midfielder Jack Wilshere sustained a foot injury while playing for the Three Lions and will miss the clash, but Wenger insists that his side can pull off an upset on Tuesday night.

Last season they lost 3-1 to Bayern in the first leg at home, but went to Germany to win 2-0 and lose out on away goals. A repeat of that score-line will see the game go into extra time.

“It is a possible task, that is the most important thing. My team has quality and ambition,” Wenger told Sky Sports.

“History is important in our belief. We know we can do it, because we have already done it (before).

“The way to win is to produce a top-level performance and turn up with quality and belief.

“The statistics are against us, but we have won 5-1 at Inter, we have won everywhere in Europe,” he said.

“We have had a few good nights in Europe but it would be absolutely great (if we won tomorrow).”

Along with Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Yaya Sanogo will miss the game through injury, while goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is suspended after picking up a red card in the first leg.
