Wenger's side have already qualified for the knockout stages of Europe's elite club competition, but they would prefer to finish the group stage in first place to avoid a potentially tricky Last 16 clash.

An online video shows the Frenchman being subjected to foul-mouthed taunts from fans.

"We'll go with a strong team of course, we want to win the game," Wenger said.
