Santi Cazorla insists Arsenal are more motivated than ever to string together a successful Champions League run.

The Gunners host Marseille in their penultimate group game on Tuesday night looking to maintain their position at the top of the table.

Arsene Wenger’s men travel to Napoli in their final group-stage clash and the Arsenal playmaker insists he needs no reminding of the tough tasks that await them.

“We are aware that we can do beautiful things, that we can do important things,” said Cazorla.

“Last year we went out having won 2-0 at Bayern Munich and this means we are a lot more excited this year about the Champions League.

“[The competition] is difficult to win. At the end of the day we have a good team, we’re going through a good patch but in this competition there are the best teams in the world. If you have a bad day you will be out of the tournament.

“It’s the best and most consistent team that is going to win. We’re aware that in order to win the Champions League we have to work hard and beat the biggest teams.”
