Thomas Muller fires warning at Arsenal ahead of Bayern Munich trip
Thomas Muller warns Arsenal that Bayern Munich will be out for revenge in two weeks' time
Thomas Muller has warned Arsenal that they will face a very tough task in repeating their Champions League heroics when they travel to Bayern Munich in a fortnight.
The Germany international was unable to prevent the Bundesliga side from slipping to a 2-0 defeat by the Gunners at Emirates Stadium as Arsene Wenger’s men revived their European hopes with an impressive victory on home soil.
The north London side remain bottom of their group, however, after Wenger’s men lost their opening two group-stage games.
And World Cup winner Muller has warned the Gunners that they will face an uphill task in taking any points from their trip to the Allianz Arena in two weeks’ time.
Muller is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard/em>: “We lead our group and have a home game. We know it won’t be easy – it is the same team who beat us.
“Only the location changes but we know that we are strong at home. With the fan support we can come away with more points than we did here.
“Football at this level is never a clear thing. It is always close. We had the game under control, especially in the part of the game where they scored.
“They countered us a couple of times. Arsenal have very good players for counter-attacks, who are very fast and have good technique.
“All in all we did more right than we did wrong but in sport you can always lose.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal turn their attentions back to Premier League affairs when they host Everton in the English top flight on Saturday afternoon. The Gunners are currently second in the table.
