"We don't live in dreamland, we are in a quarter-final and we have to be very realistic and go step by step and give everything to go through in the quarter-final", Wenger said.

At a press conference, the 29-year-old told reporters: "I can say it's a very good team. For us tomorrow it's about our performance and our crowd will be behind us".

Wenger has a fully fit squad, with France worldwide Alexandre Lacazette available following knee surgery. Alexandre Lacazette scored against Stoke at the weekend, his first goal since mid-January, so he'll be feeling refreshed psychologically.
