‘We can't wait for Fenerbahce test’

Aaron Ramsey says the Arsenal squad are eagerly anticipating their Champions League play-off tie against Fenerbahce.

Arsene Wenger’s side travel to Turkey on August 21, before welcoming Ersun Yanal’s side to north London for the return leg six days later.

Ramsey scored in the Gunners' 5-2 win the last time the two sides met at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium and he says the team are in confident mood ahead of the tie.

"The support there is quite phenomenal and I'm sure they'll be up for it again"

“It's obviously going to be a very tough game for us but we did a lot of hard work last season to get into this position so we're looking forward to the test of going there,” he said.

“We had a really good result there a few years back. The support there is quite phenomenal and I'm sure they'll be up for it again.

“But we realise what we have to do and I'm sure with this group of players, we're more than capable of producing a good performance and result."

Wenger accepts that his side face a tough task against a team that finished second in the Turkish Super Lig last season.

“It is a difficult draw because Fenerbahce are a team who have a history in the Champions League and have good players who have played before in the Premier League, for exampleJoseph Yobo and Dirk Kuyt,” he said.

“I looked at their squad - they have a lot of experience in there. We need a good performance. I'm confident we can go through but it's a big task.”
