Wenger happy to accept favourites tag
Manager Arsene Wenger has welcomed Arsenal's Champions League draw and accepts his side are the favourites to progress.
The Gunners face Schalke and the champions of Greece and France respectively, Olympiacos and Montpellier, in a group that is reasonably light on travelling.
Wenger, who is preparing Arsenal for Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield, stresses the need to make a positive start against Montpellier on September 18.
"We will be favourites because we have the biggest experience in this group," he told Arsenal Player. "But we know by experience that the Champions League is the Champions League.
"Every team is a special occasion, it's always a cup game and you want to be serious and have a good start."
