Arsenal would be looking to carry their winning momentum from Premier League to Champions League to secure their first triumph of the new season in European top flight when they host Greek side Olympiakos at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.
Arsene Wenger’s men were left dumbfounded when they lost 2-1 away to Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League campaign opener fortnight ago before being thrashed by Chelsea in a controversy-ridden London Derby at Stamford Bridge days later.
The Gunners, however, managed to pull their campaign back on track with a victory over Tottenham in north London derby in the midweek before thrashing Leicester City 5-2 on Saturday evening.
After securing two victories in the past week, Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker claimed that Gunners have restored their confidence and are ready to face the Greeks.
However, Arsenal must be wary of Olympiakos, who are also searching for their first victory of the new Champions League after losing to Bayern Munich in their campaign opener.
