Gibbs out of Bayern clash


Arsene Wenger has revealed his latest team news ahead of tomorrow night’s Champions League second-leg against Bayern Munich and confirmed that Kieran Gibbs has not travelled.

Speaking to assembled media at the Allianz Arena this evening, the Frenchman revealed:

“We lost Gibbs [with an ankle problem]. Koscielny is back in the squad. Gibbs has a chance for Sunday. Vermaelen at left-back [is possible].”

Nacho Monreal is also currently sidelined, hence the hint about the Belgian filling in.

Arsenal need to score at least twice inside 90 minutes to have any chance of edging out Pep Guardiola’s side and after the Everton match on Saturday, the boss was in bullish mood: “What I rate is that we have a huge desire to turn this result around.

“We have nothing to lose but let’s be inspired by the type of performance we have shown, show the same attitude and put them under pressure then I think we have a chance.”

Suggsesting anything is possible he happily recalled the ‘Invincibles’ trip to the San Siro in 2003: “The statistics are against us, but we have won 5-1 at Inter, we have won everywhere in Europe.”
