Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he is really worried that his players might not recover mentally if his team suffer defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
The Frenchman said as quoted in the press:
“I’m not worried about us coming back against Bayern, I’m more worried about consequences that could manifest themselves in our players.”
For a club like Arsenal, the expectations are always going to be high, no matter what the situation. The players who wear the famous jersey for the club are expected to give their best shot each and every time.
Likewise, against Bayern, though hope is against them, the Gunners are expected to at least mount a serious fight for the match.
Arsenal already lost 3-1 on their home turf and against a quality opposition like Bayern, to turn the deficit and get victory is almost an impossible task.
Therefore, Arsenal should not keep any expectations (high or low) at all for their own good only. In all probability they will be defeated and it would be too hard to swallow that if they enter the match with any kind of expectations.
Top four finish is their main priority (though are seven points behind Spurs) this season and they should simply focus on clinching that spot.
