Arsenal Women boss Jonas Eidevall believes his side have 'no fear at all' ahead of their Champions League trip to holders Barcelona

Arsenal Women boss Jonas Eidevall insists his side have nothing to fear ahead of the daunting Champions League trip to holders Barcelona.

The Catalans outclassed Chelsea 4-0 in last season's final and won five out of five in the Primera Division this term, scoring 35 goals and conceding just one.

Arsenal have also begun the campaign in fine form with four wins from four leaving them on top of the Women's Super League.

"It's important to emphasise Barcelona is the best team - and I mean team in capital letters - the way they are playing and especially in offence," said Eidevall ahead of Tuesday's match.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge. I have belief in this team. We have scored not less than three in any game we have played so far, which is quite impressive.

"It's a very good football team but they are also beatable. It's 11 humans against 11 humans. In Sweden we say 'a shovel is a shovel'. And a football game is a football game.

"I'm really looking forward to the challenge, with no fear at all."
