Arsene Wenger believes that a point in our opening Champions League game against Kiev would be a good start.

And I gotta agree.

Kiev have often proved to be a banana skin for the Gunners, and to come away from what is arguably our hardest CL group stage game with anything will be a huge bonus.

“It is a tough place for us to go, It is maybe a little bit better for us to play earlier but I am convinced it will still be a massive challenge. We`ll go there and try to win the game but even if we take a point then for me it will be a good start.’ Said Wenger

“Dynamo Kyiv knocked out Spartak Moscow 4-1, 4-1 . When you know Spartak Moscow and how strong the Russian League is at the moment that means it is a tough draw. I saw the first game at Spartak Moscow and Dynamo Kyiv were really impressive.

“Our group has four teams who are all used to playing in the Champions League – Fenerbache, Porto, Dynamo and us. Anyone can take points off anyone that`s why for me it`s very important we start well in this game.”

I’m also fairly happy that this game will be out of the way early before it really gets to be brass monkeys weather out there.
