Wenger desperate for Arsenal to win away in Europe

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking for a first away European victory in more than a year when Arsenal travel to Partizan Belgrade - both for his team's Champions League and domestic ambitions.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking for a first away European victory in more than a year when Arsenal travel to Partizan Belgrade - both for his team's Champions League and domestic ambitions.

The Gunners opened their Group H campaign with a 6-0 demolition of Braga at Emirates Stadium a fortnight ago.

With what is set to be a first genuine test of their Barclays Premier League title credentials away to leaders Chelsea next Sunday afternoon, both the result and the performance in Belgrade take on an extra significance.

"It is important to get a good result against Partizan Belgrade because first of all, it gives us a good opportunity to qualify if we can then win our home game afterwards," said Wenger, whose team lost their quarter-final against Barcelona in April and last won a Champions League away fixture at Standard Liege during September 2009.

"As well, it is important before going to Chelsea that we have a good performance."
