Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is sweating on today's Champions League qualifying draw.

Wenger admits there are dangerous opponents lurking in Friday's draw for the final qualifying round of the Champions League.

Lille, Athletic Bilbao, Besiktas, Standard Liege and FC Copenhagen are among the teams who could stop Arsenal securing a 17th successive season in the group stages.

Manager Wenger said: "It is a difficult step for us. Last season we had to go to Fenerbahce after a defeat at home to Aston Villa. We were lucky we got a good response."
