Montpellier star Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has insisted that his side will compete against Arsenal.

The French champions travel to the Emirates tonight and they are hoping to record a famous victory over the Gunners.

“Montpellier do not go to London for the tourism,” Yanga-Mbiwa told Sky Sports.

“We are the French champions, Arsenal is a big and difficult rival but we want to offer the best image we can in the Champions League.

“We are rookies in this competition and we have paid for that inexperience.

“I think that we have merited more points in the table but that happens in football.

“Arsenal are very strong at the Emirates, but we want to beat Arsenal on Wednesday and if they want the three points they will need to sweat for them.”
