Arsene Wenger admits he will "feel powerless" watching Arsenal from the stands in Montpellier tonight - and maintains he still does not really understand why UEFA handed him a three-match suspension.

Wenger was fined 40,000 Euros (£33,000) and banned after he confronted referee Damir Skomina in the wake of last season's Champions League defeat by AC Milan at Emirates Stadium.

Wenger, though, sees no reason why it should impact on Arsenal's performance in France, where new assistant Steve Bould will take charge on the sidelines. He said: "I will feel powerless, but sometimes have that feeling on the bench anyway."
