WE FIGHT ON ALL FRONTS

Daily Mirror - - FOOTBALL SPY - BY ADRIAN KAJUMBA

PETR CECH says Arse­nal are aim­ing to be con­tenders in ev­ery com­pe­ti­tion this sea­son.

In the Cham­pi­ons League that means they will have to end their in­cred­i­ble round of 16 hoodoo – the Gun­ners have gone out at that stage in each of the last six sea­sons.

They last reached the quar­ter-fi­nals in 2010 and semi-fi­nals the sea­son be­fore.

Keeper Cech (above), re­flect­ing on Arse­nal’s “slow start” to the sea­son and one point from two games, said: “We have plenty of points to win and we work to­wards our tar­gets which are to play for the ti­tle and make sure we have a chance in ev­ery com­pe­ti­tion.”

Arse­nal will be in pot two again in to­day’s group stage draw. Pre­vi­ously their con­sis­tency in qual­i­fy­ing earned them a place among the top seeds but that now goes to the cham­pi­ons.

They will face one of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Ju­ven­tus, Ben­fica, Paris Sain­tGer­main or CSKA Moscow in their group.
