Arsene Wenger believes there are more genuine contenders for this season’s Champions League than in the recent past.
In the past six seasons, Real Madrid have won it twice, Barcelona twice, Bayern Munich once and Chelsea once.
But this year, Wenger feels it is a more open competition with any number of clubs standing a realistic chance of lifting the trophy in May.
"It looks like [there are more contenders]," he said. "No team is super, super favourite and everybody can have a chance.
"The quality of the draw, or the luck of the draw, could have a part to play as well because we know now that after finishing top of the group, our second game is at home.
"So that gives you a psychological advantage and we just have to look at it and deal with it after."
More polls coming later in the season!
