Wenger: We Can Win UCL

Speaking to the press ahead of Arsenal’s UEFA Champions League Group F clash with Napoli on Tuesday, Arsene Wenger said he believes his Gunners, who are currently top of the English Premier League, are serious challengers for this season’s UCL title.

"It is something I miss that I will try to fight very hard to fill my CV with," Wenger said, when asked about his team’s chances of winning. "But you play against Barcelona, Bayern (Munich), Real Madrid -- every year they are there with a chance. You always think 'let's do it' every year, and one year it will go for you, so let's hope it will be this year. The competition is higher than ever.”

He added: "If we get out of the group I would say we have a chance (to win the trophy) -- but what we have to show is that we have the strength. It is difficult to predict because after the group stage, it is a cup (competition) and then it is about who is available, who is fit and who isn't, you cannot plan."
