Finish the job, Wenger urges Arsenal lads

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will field a strong side after urging his players to “finish the job” in the Champions League against Paris St-Germain.

The Gunners and PSG both have 10 points and have booked their place in the knockout stage with two games to spare.

France forward Olivier Giroud could start after his equaliser as a substitute at Manchester United on Saturday.

“It is a luxury to be qualified after four games,” said Wenger.

Arsenal are level on points with PSG at the top of the group, and their manager wants a victory to ensure a favourable draw in the last 16.

A win on Wednesday would secure top spot with one game to play, as it would leave Wenger’s team three points clear of PSG and with a better head-to-head record. The winners will be drawn against a runner-up from another group in the next round.

Arsenal drew 1-1 away to PSG on 13 September, and Wenger added: “We have done the job in a convincing way.

“Now, we have to finish the job at home. We played a draw there and now it is down to us to win the game.”
