Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants his side to make amends for defeat to Chelsea when the Gunners take on Olympiacos in the Champions League tonight, Wednesday 3 October 2012.
The North Londoners saw a successful start to the season abruptly halted at the weekend as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at Emirates Stadium.
Wenger's side takes on the Greek champions and the Frenchman wants to see an improved performance in the Group B encounter.
- The players are focused and disappointed that we lost the game, the Arsenal manager told ESPN.
- They are still down of course, but we have a Champions League game in front of us at home and we want to put things right.
Have to respond
- It is about how we respond. I am impressed by the mentality of my team, but the mentality is as well about how you respond to disappointment. I am confident we will, but that is what we want to show tomorrow.
Arsenal will be hoping to make it two wins from two Group B games, having returned from Montpellier with three points on matchday one. Olympiacos lost their opener at home to Schalke and Wenger knows the clash at the Emirates provides a chance to take a stranglehold on the group.
- Olympiacos are already in a position where their backs are to the wall because they have lost at home and in this Champions League when you lose at home it is very difficult, the Frenchman said.
- They are highly motivated to know they have to give everything to make it through. They are experienced and basically it is the same team [as it was] at the back of last season. I think they had a difficult start against Marseille and after became stronger and stronger through the competition last year.
