Arsenal boss hopes FA Cup win can inspire Bayern comeback

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hopes his side can use the momentum gathered from their FA Cup Sixth Round win over Everton to inspire a mid-week comeback against Bayern Munich.

The Gunners’ Champions League hopes for this season appear to be hanging by a thread following their 2-0 home defeat to the reigning European champions as they prepare for their trip to the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.

Goals from Mesut Ozil and Mikel Arteta followed by a late brace from Oliver Giroud ensured that the London side booked their spot in the last four of the FA Cup – guaranteeing an outing at Wembley.

Wenger was thrilled with the result, and is now hopeful that his team can carry the feel good factor into the Bayern game and achieve a memorable result:

“It was important for us to win, to put us in a good mind on the psychological front,” he told Sky Sports.

“We can be inspired by our focus on the day, by our desire and go to Bayern with the same spirit.

“The statistics go against us when we go to Bayern, but let’s make sure that the performance goes for us. Then we have a chance.”

Arsenal are clear underdogs for the Bayern clash, but they can take heart from a shock 2-0 win in Munich last season.
