'Arsenal can win Champions League'

Juergen Klopp insists Arsenal can go all the way in the Champions League this season after the Gunners beat his Borussia Dortmund side.

Uersfeld: Three things from Dortmund v Arsenal
Mangan: A massive win for Gunners
Wenger: Arsenal must remain focused

Aaron Ramsey headed the vital goal just past the hour which gave Arsenal a 1-0 win and sent them top of Group F, avenging their 2-1 defeat to Dortmund -- last season’s beaten finalists -- at the Emirates Stadium two weeks ago.

And Dortmund coach Klopp believes Arsenal can now go on and win their first European Cup -- as long as they don’t run into holders Bayern Munich.

"Yes, they can win it," Klopp said. "Yes, Arsenal have the quality to win the Champions League," he said. "They are young, healthy and good technically. They were clever enough to get a result tonight. Of course they can win the final if they don't play against Bayern Munich."

Wenger agreed with his counterpart, saying his side showed what they were capable of in Europe and that they should fear no one.

"This is a huge result. I just hope it strengthens the belief of the team," said Wenger. "We have another massive game on Sunday [at Manchester United] and we want that kind of performance again. Not many teams in the Champions League could achieve this. Overall I would say the team has shown huge solidarity to get through difficult moments in the game.

"We won against a very good team and I respect them. There was maybe more at stake here than when we won in Munich [2-0 in the second leg of last season's last 16] because people felt they took the game easy because they had beaten us 3-1 at home [in the first leg].

"Against Dortmund both teams had to win -- a draw was not good enough. We were united and focused, especially defensively. Dortmund put us under huge pressure and we kept a lot of possession and it was a bit sterile in the first half.

"It was a question of being focused, intelligent, not to make the first mistake but wait for the moment. We had a difficult period in the second half after the first goal and after that we could have scored again."
