The Gunners were surprisingly beaten 3-2 at home by Olympiakos on Tuesday night to kick off their Group F camping with successive defeats, leaving them reeling at the foot of the table.

With a home clash with German giants Bayern Munich next on the agenda, it gets no easier for Arsenal, but Wenger was remaining defiant in the face of adversity in his post-match press conference.

“It puts us in a bad position but we are still in it,” he said.

“We have to think we can deal with (Dinamo) Zagreb and Olympiakos and we need a result in our next game away from home against Bayern Munich.”

After losing to Zagreb and Olympiakos, the North Londoners are without a point at the bottom of the group, three points behind both the Croatian and Greek champions, and six in arrears of Bundesliga winners Bayern.
