Wenger: Belief is back

ARSENE WENGER knows momentum will be everything if Arsenal are to continue their revival as they prepare for Tuesday night's Champions League F opener in Dortmund.

The Gunners recorded a nervous 1-0 win over Swansea at Emirates Stadium yesterday as they secured a first Premier League victory of the new campaign.

Wenger now wants all thoughts of the 8-2 humiliation at Manchester United before the international break to be put out of the players' minds as they focus on the targets in front of them.

"In our job, momentum is vital. We just want to play to win," said the Arsenal manager.

"When you look back when we travelled to Udinese (for the Champions League play-off) everyone expected us to win the game and we did, we want the same against Dortmund."

Wenger continued: "The confidence is back now. We just had not won yet in the league and that had played a big part in our heads."
