Per Mertesacker issues Arsenal rallying cry after PSG draw
Per Mertesacker takes to social media after Arsenal's 2-2 draw with PSG in the Champions League
Per Mertesacker has taken to social media to insist that Arsenal fear no teams in the next round of the Champions League.
The Gunners were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw by PSG at The Emirates on Wednesday night as they were forced to settle for a point, which means they are unlikely to top their group.
That sets up Arsenal with a potentially trickier last-16 draw next month, something that the Gunners will have been keen to avoid following their exits for the last six seasons at that stage.
However, Arsenal captain Mertesacker was feeling upbeat despite the disappointment of the result against the Ligue 1 side.
The German defender posted the picture below on his Twitter account and wrote the caption:
We fought well tonight against tough opposition! Thanks to all the fans! We fear no team in the next round with support like ours! 🔴💪🏻⚽️ pic.twitter.com/MBfwa8Ti6x

Arsenal now turn their attentions back to Premier League affairs and their home clash with Bournemouth at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
The north London side have drawn their last three games in all competitions.
