Don’t Lost Track of Defense

While it’s absolutely imperative that we grab goals early and create chances often, we can’t fall into the same trap that we fell into last time, with Kieran Gibbs and Hector Bellerin both being caught up. One goal by Monaco and Arsenal’s chances are nearly decimated. Two goals and it would take an even bigger miracle than it already will.

Just because we need goals doesn’t mean we can throw it all to the wind, but Arsene Wenger is smart, he won’t let that happen. It also falls on Per Mertesacker, who wants to forget the first leg probably about as much as Olivier Giroud does.
