Oxlade-Chamberlain not looking back ahead of Bayern tie

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says the Gunners will not think about past results as they prepare to face Bayern Munich away in the first-leg of their round of 16 Champions League tie on Wednesday.

The English club have only won two of their last six encounters against the German giants, including a 5-1 hammering at the Allianz Arena last season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain however will not dwell on what has gone before even though Arsenal have not gone past the Champions League round of 16 stage in the last six seasons.

The England international told reporters: "You don't look into history too much. It is just two games against a very good side.

"But we are also a very good side. We have to make sure we play well on the day because we are going to have to if we are going to beat Bayern Munich. It is as simple as that.

"If you're going to win the Champions League you are going to have to beat Bayern Munich. We have had a lot of experiences against them in the competition.

"It is a massive opportunity for us to go far in the Champions League. We know that we can change some of the negative feelings around because of what's going on in the Premier League at the moment."
