London - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the Premier League clubs are closing the gap on the top UEFA Champions League sides.
The Gunners are in position to top Group A in the Champions League, and will qualify for the knockout stage of the competition in first place if they beat Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.
Wenger's charges have not progressed past the last-16 phase in the last six seasons, but the Frenchman believes they are catching up to the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich.
When asked in a press conference if the gap is closing, he said: "I feel that, yes. Man City winning against Barcelona, we have an opportunity to show it against Paris Saint-Germain.
"Everywhere you go, the difference in the Champions League, the teams all play football. In the Premier league, even if you have 80% possession, you can still lose the game. The pressure on the Premier League games is today massive in the Premier League.
"I must say that I watched Real Madrid against Atletico Madrid on Saturday and I was impressed by them. They looked at the moment to be the most dangerous side."
Meanwhile, Wenger has admitted that he feels guilty when his side finishes second in a Champions League group saying that they have a chance to rectify that tonight against PSG.
Kick off is at 21:45.
