Wenger eyes remarkable comeback
- From the section Football
Arsene Wenger urges Arsenal to "ignore" their 4-0 defeat by AC Milan in the first leg of the Champions League last 16, saying his players must recreate the form they showed in last week's 5-2 victory over Tottenham. when they face the Italian giants in the second-leg on Tuesday.
The result was Arsenal's heaviest loss in European competition and Wenger admits Arsenal must be wary of AC Milan scoring even more goals, telling his side to "find a balance between attack and defending".
The Frenchman, whose side produced a last-gasp 2-1 win at Liverpool on Saturday, believes overcoming the 4-0 deficit is a "real possibility" despite missing Mikel Arteta and possibly Tomas Rosicky through injury.
