Fenerbahce midfielder Meireles convinced heaping more misery on Arsenal

Fenerbahce midfielder Raul Meireles says they're confident facing Arsenal in their Champions League qualifier.

The former Chelsea and Liverpool midfielder is convinced they can shock Arsenal.

He said: "Arsenal is a tough draw, but we know we can beat them. They have some very good players, but they have not improved like they would have wanted this ­summer. We can compete with them on a football level.

"When you consider how tough a place Turkey is to visit, we have every reason to feel confident we can beat Arsenal.

"The fans create a real atmosphere here and it is intimidating for the opposition. We are ­confident we could go and win in London if we needed to."
