The Welsh club have won their last two meetings with the Gunners, including that win at the Emirates Stadium last month thanks to a Michu brace.
“It’s never nice to have lost at home and they will remember our game - they will want revenge,” he said.
“It looked bad after they played us - they were 10th. For a club like Arsenal, that’s a disaster.
“But they won three games consecutively and they are back again.
“They are many years without a trophy and they know the league is not a trophy for them. They have two left so they will come with their best possible line-up and do everything to beat us.”
