ARSENAL are the least fancied of the four remaining English premier teams left in the Champions League.

While they appear to have one of the easier passages to the semi-finals with their two-leg tie against Villareal, the Gunners are being quoted by most bookmakers as 8/1 chances to win the tournament.

This compares to Manchester United, the outright favourites at 2/1, with Chelsea and Liverpool being quoted at around the 7/1 mark.

Barcelona are second favourites at 3/1 and Portugese side Porto, winners under Jose Mourinho four years ago, are the rank outsiders at 33/1.

Arsenal's next opponents, Villareal, are also unfancied, and are available at 20/1 and upwards.
