Wenger relieved at Besiktas win
- From the section Football
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his side "beat a very good team" after a 1-0 victory over Besiktas sees the Gunners progress to the group stage of the Champions League.
Alexis Sanchez scored the vital goal but it was a nervous end as Mathieu Debuchy was sent off with 14 minutes to go.
Wenger also provides an injury update on Olivier Giroud after the striker sustained an injury in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Everton, confirming that he would be out for "three to four months" after having surgery on a broken tibia.
