Cape Town - Danny Welbeck is relishing the chance to test himself against the world’s best players in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The England forward has already impressed in Europe this season, scoring a hat-trick against Galatasaray in Group D, but remains eager to prove himself further.

The Gunners host Monaco in the last 16 on Wednesday and Welbeck is confident they have the quality to progress to the quarter-finals.

“It’s a special competition,” the forward said on arsenal.com.

“You get to play against different styles of play, the best sides in Europe and it’s something that a lot of the players look forward to. It’s massive if you can get far in the competition and that's what we're going to be doing this season.

“I would love to keep on progressing to the last stages of the competition and that’s the aim for all the players here. Testing yourself against the world's best players in the Champions League is a great challenge.

“At this level every match you play is going to be a challenge, but all players enjoy it. We just need to be strong on the day and play to our strengths.

“We're obviously all looking forward to playing against Monaco. Any team you get in the Champions League will be a difficult opponent and it will be no different with Monaco. They have strong players and it's going to be a big challenge for us over the two legs.”
