Wenger's not for wasting time

Arsene Wenger insists he would not waste his time if he did not believe Arsenal can beat AC Milan and go on to win the Champions League.

Wenger, whose side recorded a famous 2-0 win on their last visit to Stadio Giuseppe Meazza against the then holders four seasons ago, maintains the Gunners mean business against the Serie A leaders after seeing his side sneak back into the top four at the weekend.

"If I would think we have no chance to win the game I would stay at home. I don't like to waste my time," the Arsenal manager declared.

"I believe what makes football interesting is that you can win everywhere.

"We have shown we can win everywhere and I have full confidence in this team that we can do it.

"We will try to play our game. Milan are a good side. We think we are a good side. We will attack, they certainly will as well. So it should be a good game."

Wenger accepts Arsenal are in a defining period of their campaign, with an FA Cup fifth round tie at Sunderland following on Sunday.

He continued: "We are concentrated on every game we play. We do not choose the games.

"We are Arsenal Football Club and we just try to win the next game.

"Is it FA Cup, Champions League or Championship? I believe it is important we are strong everywhere."
