Arsenal hope for unlikely comeback

Arsenal go into an improbable situation with renewed hope and confidence after encouraging Premier League performances.

Arsenal’s season appeared to be over after losing 4-0 to AC Milan in the last 16 of the Champions League and exiting the FA Cup at the fifth round stage.

However, the Gunners came from behind to stun rivals Spurs and backed that performance up by becoming the first side to beat Liverpool at Anfield this season. People looking at the Betfair Premier League will know the side have looked good.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is in defiant mood ahead of the second leg against Milan at the Emirates Stadium.

"We want to have a real go. The best way is to ignore the first game and do what we did against Tottenham. We were 2-0 down and just kept going because we wanted to win," Wenger said.

Wenger, who admitted his side were all-but out of the Champions League immediately after the dismal showing in Italy, believes Arsenal have enough firepower to trouble the Italian giants in the return leg.

"We have to gamble a little bit and we have to go forward. We know that. If they can score four we can do it as well. Why not?" Wenger added.

Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has urged his players to put the first leg out of their minds and prepare for an Arsenal backlash.

"We must be conscious that we are going to face a team with great qualities and a team which will try to change the course of the tie right from the beginning," Allegri said.

"I also know the English teams will never surrender."

History is against Arsenal. No team has overturned a four-goal deficit in Champions League history and those following the Champions League betting should bear this in mind.

The first mission for Wenger and his side is to reclaim lost pride. From there, anything can happen.
