Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, insists that if his side beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League, they can go on and win the whole competition.

Talking in his press conference ahead of his side's FA Cup game on Saturday against Blackburn Rovers, Wenger was confident that they can give Munich a good game.

The German outfit finished runners-up in last year's final after losing to Chelsea on penalties, and are flying this year, 15 points clear in the Bundesliga without a loss since late October with four wins on the bounce.

But Wenger believes his side can give them a good match and if they can beat the German side, they will then have the confidence to beat anyone in the competition.

"We have a big game on Tuesday against Bayern. If we get past them, then why should we not go further and win it?" Wenger said

"It looks at the start that (winning) the FA Cup is more reachable than any other competition, but you don't really know how difficult it will be.

"If you compare it to the Premier League certainly, we have more chances to do it because we are too far away in the Premier League," he added.

Despite having the big Champions League clash on Tuesday, Wenger insists that he will play a strong team against Championship side Blackburn, on Saturday in the FA Cup, as the Frenchman believes they have a great chance of winning the trophy.

"The FA Cup is an important target for us. We always take it very seriously, we're on a good run and we want to continue the run," said Wenger.

"We are the favourites, they're the outsiders, and have nothing to lose. However, if you look at who is in the squad, many of their players have Premier League experience, that is why they are dangerous."

Back-to-back victories for Arsenal means they sit fifth in the Premier League, four points behind Tottenham who occupy the final Champions League spot.
