Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to Sky Sports:“It’s always an uncertainty before a game like this against strong opponents. You want to be at your best but also efficient.
“In the final it’s first defend well and then take your chances. We are a very offensive team in midfield so need security at the back.”
