Arsene Wenger's side won 2-0 at the Allianz Arena, but agonisingly dropped out of the UEFA Champions League on the away goals rule.

The Gunners bounced back from that disappointment with a 2-0 victory at Swansea last time to sit fifth in the Premier League, four points behind arch-rivals Tottenham with a game in hand.

Next up, Arsenal face relegation strugglers Reading at the Emirates on Saturday, and Rosicky is relishing a return to domestic action after the international break.

"Ideally, I don't think we would have had a break after the last two results," Rosicky told Arsenal's official website.

"The game in Munich could be the equivalent of last season's Tottenham game - the stepping stone or turning point. Three days later, at Swansea, we put in another very good performance.

"Now we need to pick up that momentum again. It's a very interesting period for us now, fighting for a place in the Champions League."

Arsenal finished strongly to claim a place in the Champions League last season and Rosicky is looking for more of the same.

"That's what I expect to happen - that we will be there again," he said.

"Of course it will be a tough task, but our advantage is that we had the same experience last year. We know it's very possible but we have to be consistent.

"Inconsistency has bothered us at times this season, but I believe we will produce a strong finish and we will make it."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
