Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Chelsea's Champions League triumph has inspired their owner Roman Abramovich.

The Russian has splashed the cash this summer to add a raft of exciting signings.

Asked whether Chelsea's Champions League win would change anything in England, Wenger said: "I don't see what it could change.

"Maybe it will wake up the appetite of Abramovich again. I'm proud when any Premier League club wins the Champions League.

"It shows how competitive the Premier League is because Chelsea finished fifth in the Premier League and that is the real quality of a team.

"More than the Champions League it is about where you finish in the league.

"That just shows how good the Premier League is."
