Arsene Wenger: Saw his side handed a difficult Champions League draw

The Gunners, who were seeded in the first pot for the draw, were placed in Group F alongside Marseille, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli and are second favourites to qualify in top spot behind last season's runners-up.

In contrast, the odds for all of the other three Premier League sides have been cut, with Chelsea 9/1 (from 11/1), Manchester City 10/1 (from 12/1) and Manchester United 11/1 (from 12/1).

Bayern Munich remain the favourites at 7/2 followed by Barcelona (9/2) and Real Madrid (11/2), while PSG and Juventus are considered the best of the rest at 18/1 apiece.

Celtic's price has been pushed out significantly, from 400/1 to a hefty 1500/1, after they were placed in the same group as Barcelona, AC Milan and Ajax.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "Arsenal were already considered a far longer price than the other Premier League sides having failed to strengthen in the transfer market this summer, but now they face a tough task in even making the knock-out stages.

"However, their impressive record of making it through the groups stages warrants respect, so we make them marginally odds-on to progress, certainly a better chance than poor Celtic."
