Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes Arsenal can top their Champions League group of death after beating Marseille 2-1.
The Gunners saw off the French side thanks to second half goals from Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey to start their European campaign off with a victory and with Napoli beating Borussia Dortmund, Wilshere feels Arsenal are in the perfect position.
“Dortmund losing does open it up a bit. We have got two home games now and they are tough team but if we play to our full potential in front of our fans, we should be able to win those games.”
“If we win both, we are sitting nine points going into the last three games and that is a good position to be in.”
“We know it is a great start because it is a tough group – Napoli beat Dortmund so any team can beat any other in this group so we have to be ready for the next game.”
Arsenal’s victory is even more impressive taking in to consideration the state of their squad, which saw three youngsters named on the bench. As the competition goes on, players will go on which will put the Gunners in a more favourable position.
