Emmanuel Adebayor argues that Arsenal will only be satisfied by winning the Champions League this season.

The Togolese striker hit the first goal at Fenerbahce on Tuesday night as Arsène Wenger’s side stormed to a 5-2 victory that kept them top of Group G and looking to seal early qualification to the next round.

Last season, Arsenal went through in similar style and then swept aside Milan before being knocked out by Liverpool at the Quarter-Final stage. Adebayor demands improvement on that and, realistically, he argues that means lifting the trophy in Rome next May.

“What we did last season is behind us now,” he said.  “We want to achieve something better than that.

“If you want to go further that really means to win it. Once you go past the Quarter-Final you only have the Semi-Final and Final so you have a lot of chance to win it.

“We have not lost a lot of players. We have only lost Hleb and Flamini but we have changed them. Nasri and Denilson have come in and are both playing good football.”
