It is said that the French tactician was happy enough to have seen his side leave undefeated, if counting the loss of captain Mikel Arteta to an ankle injury.

“It was a difficult match, played at a high pace. Besiktas played with 100 per cent pace in the game and did fight for every single ball, and it was quick. We needed a great level of concentration,” he said.

“We are maybe still a bit short physically in some situations, but overall it was a game played for 90 minutes at great pace.”

Wenger continued: “We always want to win but look, Besiktas could have won the game, and we could have won the game as well. Maybe a draw is a fair result because both teams had chances to win the game.

“We know the second leg will be certainly tight again, but we play at home, so the task is clear for us, we want to win.”
