Wright: Arsenal need to focus

I only envisage problems attitude wise.

If their attitude is not right then I feel at this level complacency could be a problem, but I think they'll be focused so it should be quite a good one.

I wasn't surprised by the first leg, as strong as Fenerbahce are I bet they were more afraid about playing Arsenal.

I thought the boys dealt with the away leg well. I was never worried about it.

– Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright

Fenerbahce fans light flares outside Arsenal hotel

Fans of Arsenal's Champions League opponents Fenerbahce lit flares and let off fireworks outside the Gunners' hotel last night as Arsene Wenger's team rested ahead of tonight's first leg qualifier.

Notoriously poorly sighted, this is one incident the Professor would have done well to miss.

Wenger, meanwhile, is unhappy at criticism of his transfer policy after Saturday's dismal Premier League opener against Aston Villa.
