Jack Wilshere says Arsenal are gunning to finish top of Group F following their victory over Marseille on Wednesday night.
The Gunners are without a doubt in one of the toughest groups after also being drawn with a strong Napoli side and last season's runners-up Borussia Dortmund.
However after Arsenal kicked off the group stage with an impressive win away at Marseille, coupled with Napoli beating Dortmund, Wilshere says top spot is now the target.
"Dortmund losing does open it up a bit," he said. "We have got two home games now [against Napoli and Dortmund] and they are tough teams but if we play to our full potential in front of our fans, we should be able to win those games.
"If we win them both, we are sitting on nine points going into the last three games and that is a good position to be in. We also have Dortmund and Napoli away and away games are always tough but we want to finish top of the group.
"In the first game, if you can't win it you make sure you don't lose it but we won so it is a great start.
"We know it is only a great start because it is a tough group ? Napoli beat Dortmund so any team can beat any other in this group so we have to be ready for the next game."
