Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker is hoping to build on the 5-2 win over Tottenham when they face Montpellier in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Last season’s win over Spurs by the same scoreline kickstarted the Gunners’ season and the hope in the camp is this season’s triumph will have the same effect.
“It was much later in the season [last time], so we have to keep on going with the Champions League [against Montpellier],” he said.
“We have a lot of things to do but it’s very good for the team that we can stick together and cope with different moments. That is a good thing for the whole team and hopefully it will force us to the next level.”
