Wenger expects fireworks between Arsenal and Partizan

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger expects tonight's Champions League clash with Partizan Belgrade will be a heated affair.

The Gunners will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing 3-2 loss to West Brom on the weekend but Wenger is well aware that his side will get no favours in Belgrade.

"It will be a heated atmosphere, Partizan are a very good side technically, and they will use every break to counter-attack us," he said.

"We will see a lot of the ball and it will be a frenetic game, but if you turn up with a good performance you can win anywhere in the world, so let's just do that."

The Gunners were far too strong for Portuguese club Braga in their opening group stage match, winning 6-0 at home, whilst Partizan lost 1-0 to Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine.
