Benitez hopes for strong start

Rafael Benitez has urged his Napoli players to get at Arsenal from the very first minute on Wednesday.

The Partenopei need to beat the Premier League leaders by three goals or more, or better Borussia Dortmund’s result against Marseille.

And the Spanish tactician has called for his men to focus on their own performance.

“We have nothing to lose,” he told a Press conference. “Everybody is saying that it’s impossible [for us to qualify].

“We just have to score a goal early on and then try for a second. We will play our own game.

“We have nothing to lose. Wenger is the best Coach in the Premier League and will have confidence in his players.

“We just have to give 100 per cent. We know that Arsenal are a quality side with speed out wide.

“But we’ll just have to attack from the off, without losing any balance.

“The idea is to press and try to do the things we were doing at the start of the season.

“We have to score straight away and then see what happens.”
