Arsene Wenger: Victory is everything for Arsenal boss

Montpellier, bottom of the group with just one point, have not won any of their last four games, and cannot qualify for the last 16.

Victory for Arsenal, coupled with a home win for Schalke against Olympiacos, would see them through ahead of Matchday Six.

"Not for a second would I think the team will be complacent- they will be full of desire to do well and win the game, I am certain of that," Wenger said.

"It is important on the back of the Tottenham game we show another good performance and a resolute attitude, that is at stake for me. After, if we produce the quality performance, we will win the game.

"We do it step by step. First of all we want to qualify, then try to top the group, so let us just win the game.

"Montpellier had a slow start to the season, but they have rediscovered their balance over the last few months and they played very well against Paris St Germain.

"It should be an open game because a draw is not good for either side."

Arsenal will be desperate to avoid a shoot-out for a place in the knockout stages when they travel to Athens, where they were beaten 3-1 last season and also lost in 2009.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
