Arsene Wenger
has warned his Arsenal boys against displaying the ‘arrogance’ they showed when they played against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.
The arrogance which he speaks of is the result of a 1-0 defeat by the Russians, and the players thinking ‘Don’t worry, we will do it’.

On the back of a decidedly average performance against Everton which saw Wenger pining about ‘boring football’, Arsenal will again face the tricky Russians on Wednesday night at Ashburton Grove; a game they can’t afford to lose. Wenger says "I was very positive going to Moscow, but as a team, we were too confident of taking the points. We were warned by Porto that CSKA were a difficult side to beat. We were not giving 100 percent in every tackle, we were not fighting for the ball enough. It was an arrogant way of not being urgent. It was as though we were thinking, ‘Don’t worry, we will do it’. Basically, expect a thrashing from The Gunners tomorrow.
