Can Arsenal win the Champions League?

Jurgen Klopp has tipped the Gunners for success after their victory over his Dortmund side on Wednesday but can they really go all the way in Europe's premier club competition?

Arsenal's impressive 1-0 victory in Dortmund on Wednesday has put the Gunners in a commanding position at the top of Champions League Group F, convincing some that they are capable of going all the way.

In the aftermath of the win, secured by Aaron Ramsey's second-half headed goal, Jurgen Klopp praised Arsene Wenger's side and even went as far as saying they can win the competition - should they avoid facing Bayern Munich.

The north Londoners have been in imperious form since that opening-day loss to Aston Villa in the Premier League and currently sit at the top of the table in England's top flight, five points ahead of the chasing pack.

A rejuvenated Ramsey is in the form of his life, having scored an incredible 11 goals from midfield this season, ably supported by summer signing Mesut Ozil, while the likes of Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla have also produced performances of the highest order in recent games.

At the back, Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny have formed a solid central defensive partnership, while goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has gone some way to answering his critics with some outstanding saves between the sticks.

Following Wednesday's victory over Dortmund, the Gunners know that another win over Marseille at the Emirates Stadium on November 26 could see them qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League - but are they equipped to go all the way and win it this season?
