Arsenal picked up a crucial Champions League win in Dortmund on Wednesday, but boss Arsene Wenger is already thinking about Sunday’s Premier League trip to Old Trafford.

The Gunners overcame last season’s beaten finalists Borussia Dortmund 1-0 at the at Westfalenstadion thanks to an Aaron Ramsey header in the second-half.

Wenger could have been forgiven for taking his eye of the Premier League after the famous European win, but the Frenchman instead urged his side to use the result as a confidence boost ahead of their big trip to Manchester United this weekend.

“I just hope that it strengthens the belief of my team that we can put another great performance in,” said the Arsenal boss. “You know we have another massive game on Sunday, and we want that kind of performance again.”

Arsenal are now the current Group F leaders with nine points, although only goal difference separates them from Italian outfit Napoli.

Dormtund are on six points, while French outfit Marseille cannot qualify for the knock-out stages having lost all four of their games to date.

A win at home over Marseille at the end of the month should be enough to send the Gunners through to the next round but Wenger remains cautious over Arsenal’s chances and has warned against complacency.

He added: “Unfortunately this group is a very strong group, and one of the big teams will have to pay a heavy price. I hope it will not be us.”
