Arsene Wenger believes wiping out AC Milan's 4-0 lead to go on and reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League tonight would rank alongside his greatest achievements at Arsenal.

The Gunners boss has called on his players to believe they can rewrite the record books to recover from their humiliation at the San Siro. In his 16 seasons at the helm, Wenger, 62, has claimed the English game's top prizes, winning the double twice and going through the 2003-04 Premier League campaign unbeaten as well as reaching the 2006 Champions League final.

Asked whether beating Milan to qualify against the odds would compare with his past achievements, Wenger said: "Certainly. I would be extremely pleased and happy with it. I have a gut feeling the players can do it and my job until 7.45pm tonight is to convince them they can do it."
