Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is backing Tottenham to enjoy a good Champions League campaign.

Spurs kicked things off last night with a 2-2 draw at Werder Bremen.

Wenger expects Spurs to hold their own in a group which also includes FC Twente and holders Inter Milan.

"It is hard for everybody but Tottenham have a quality squad," he told arsenal.com.

"They have brought William Gallas and Rafael van der Vaart and if you look at the number of players they have now you don’t even speak about David Bentley who they brought for £17 million.

"They have Robbie Keane, Nico Krancjar, Luka Modric, Van der Vaart, Roman Pavlyuchenko... they have the quantity. In central defence I don’t know but they must have six or seven central defenders so they have a big enough squad to deal with the physical demands."
