And despite a tall task in overturning Monaco’s first leg UEFA Champions League lead this week, Wenger knows his team has plenty of momentum after today’s win and Monday’s FA Cup win over Manchester United.

“We have a massive challenge but we will give absolutely everything to try and go through. [A poor pitch] is one of the problems, there is a lot of rain down there and when it rains, it rains. It’s not absolutely fantastic but we won’t have any excuses. They are favourites now but we can reverse it, we just have to make sure that the spirit, the belief and the desire is there.”

Monaco hosts Arsenal on Tuesday at 3:45 pm ET.
