Wenger: Arsenal fear no-one in Champions League

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says they'll take on all-comers in the Champions League after victory last night over Steaua Bucharest.

Victory was not enough to secure the Gunners top spot in Group H of the Champions League and they are now likely to land tough opposition in the draw for the last 16 a week on Friday.

But Wenger refused to rue the failure to secure inclusion among the top seeds and is confident Arsenal can topple any of the competition's big guns.

The Frenchman said: "We finished with 13 points which was good but not good enough to win the group.

"That promises us a very interesting last-16 game. I'm not at all disappointed that we can now draw one of the big clubs.

"It's a good opportunity to prove ourselves. Two years ago we played Juventus and won.

"Last season we played PSV Eindhoven yet lost. It's a cup game.

"I'm highly confident we can beat anybody. I have great belief in my team and their ability to grow stronger."
