Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says they'll embrace a tough February.

Arsenal begin February with a home game against Crystal Palace before facing a run of matches against Liverpool, Manchester United, Liverpool again in the FA Cup and Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

"It is a good opportunity for us," Wenger said. "We play Man United at home, Man City at home, we go to Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham.

"But if you look at our away record it is very good. Since December, I've said to the players, the Emirates will decide our season."
