Wenger keen for Arsenal to avoid Premiership opposition

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he wants to avoid Premiership opposition in the Champions League.

He said: "Every English team if they are really honest would prefer to play a foreign team.

"It becomes more of a domestic competition when you play a local team but if we have to overcome an English hurdle we will do that as well.

"To be champions in England you have to go from Milan to Wigan and win the game and I like that because it is a completely different type of game. You have to find a response to what you face."
