2004:

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal are in the driving seat after a 1-1 draw at Chelsea in the first leg of their Champions League quarter final.

Eidur Gudjohnsen fired the Blues ahead on 53 minute after a Jens Lehmann blunder but Robert Pires hauled the visitors level with a late header to set up a thrilling second leg at Highbury in a fortnight's time.

"Psychologically we now have the edge," said Wenger. "You could see when we scored what a big blow that was for them.

'We won't play for a nil-nil draw in the second leg because that would be too dangerous. We will play to win the game."

Despondent Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri adds: "This season Arsenal play in a different world... but we still have a chance."
