Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is relieved to have secured progression to the Champions League knockout stages with a game to spare but pledged to field a full-strength team at Olympiacos in a bid to top the group.

The Gunners dispatched of French champions Montpellier with relative ease as they claimed a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium which, combined with Schalke's late win over Olympiacos, ensured Arsenal's progression to the last 16 with a trip to the Greek side yet to come.

The north Londoners sit second in Group B heading into the last round of fixtures, and Wenger said: "We needed two good results - our result and the Schalke result - and we got both so obviously we're happy."
