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."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
