Arsenal ace calls for focus ahead of Champions League crunch

Wojciech Szczesny has warned his Arsenal team-mates to stay focused as they plot to ensure a spot in the Champions League last 16.

Although the Gunners let a 3-0 lead slip to draw at home to Anderlecht last time out, they only need a point from their remaining two Group D games to ensure qualification for the knockout phase.

Arsenal are set to take on top of the pile Dortmund this week, before a trip to, as it stands, winless Galatasaray awaits them in the final tie.

With odds heavily stacked in their favour following a solid opening three games, the Londoners are expected to make it through, but goalkeeper Szczesny has urged his side to remain professional and ensure they get the job done:

“We know that we only need one point from our last two matches to qualify for the last sixteen, but we know that we have not made it yet,” he is quoted by the London Evening Standard.

“We are playing at home in front of our fans and we are confident that we can put in a good performance and qualify.”

Arsenal enter this week’s clash on the back of a loss at home to Manchester United.
