Cesc: Arsenal better suited to Europe than Premiership

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas admits Arsene Wenger's team are more suited to Champions League football than the weekly battle in the Premiership.

"All the games are very difficult because opponents know if they let us play we can be very dangerous, so they all close down quickly and defend, then get lucky like [against Aston Villa] last week and get an own goal," Fabregas said. "That is what they're praying for when they play Arsenal.

"When you play against Milan and players like Kaka and Pirlo, you have to play with no fear. You have to enjoy it and you could see that even in the warm-up. In the atmosphere of the San Siro, you could see the smiling faces of the players. We play football because of nights like this. We wanted to enjoy it and that's what we did."
