While Arsenal and every other club in the Premier League, especially now that last season’s shock triumph by Leicester City has made anything seem possible, sees the domestic title as the main goal of the season, I think that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans would be just as happy to claim a first ever victory in the elite European competition that is the Champions League.
