Arsène Wenger believes it is premature to talk about Arsenal as potential winners of the Champions League but feels his side will be contenders for European glory this season.

The manager kicks off his latest quest for the Continent's biggest club competition against Borussia Dortmund in Germany on Tuesday night.

“I wouldn't rule it out yet,” he said. “But it’s too early to speak about winning it.

“Saying that would raise a lot of scepticism about the team at the moment and I don't think any one would believe it.

“But we have to do as well as we can and we have to form a team in the next two months. It's too early to have that kind of ambition.”
