After seeing the Arsenal line-up, which includes the likes of Mathieu Flamini and 19-year-old Alex Iwobi, the television personality took to social media to make the outrageous claim. 

The Gunners, of course, are hoping to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit at the home of the current Champions League holders.
