Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor says losing possession in the Champions League can be brutal.

Arsenal go into tonight's Champions League second-leg clash at AC Milan after a 0-0 draw at Emirates stadium and Adebayor admits: "The difference is that in the Premier League sometimes when you lose the ball there might not be that much danger.

"But in the Champions League if you lose the ball in the opponent's half it's not good. If you lose it in your half, then you're in real trouble.

"The Champions League sometimes feels like you're playing basketball - you lose the ball and then there's a goal."
