Important game but no symbolism between Arsenal and PSG - Wenger

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has played down suggestions that there is an extra importance to this week's clash with PSG.

The Frenchman was asked ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League encounter if there is any emphasis placed on the fact the Ligue 1 champions are known as a big-spending club, as opposed to the general perception of the Gunners.

Wenger also denied claims the match had extra bearing due to the fact he has often been a target for the Qatar-owned PSG.

"It's an important game, but I don't think it goes beyond two good sides playing against each other," said Wenger.

"There's no symbolism to it, no symbolic meaning to this match. We just want to pick up the three points."
