Wenger celebrates with former stars in Milan

The first game against Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday will be an opportunity to put ourselves on the road to qualification.

We have to score at least one goal, and play in a positive way in Milan.

We will not remain deep in defence and will do our best to score goals - as we always have to against Milan.

Milan have such know-how in the Champions League because they have played in this competition for years now. They also have many exceptional talents at their disposal such as Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Pato in attack.

We will need a big defensive performance - and not forget to score goals.

We played them in the second leg of a last-16 tie in 2008, winning 2-0 to reach the quarter-finals.

I remember that it was an accomplished game from us, but above all one where we played without complexes.

We were confident in our strength and our game - and we must rely on this once more this week.

We have to go to Milan with the conviction that if we play our own game, it will pay off.

That is what we did last time.
