Winger Theo Walcott believes Europe's top sides will be fearful of playing Arsenal after their 5-2 Champions League demolition of Fenerbahce in Istanbul.
The hosts' intimidating Sukru Saracoglu Stadium has been a fortress over the last couple of years, with the team not having lost there in 16 European matches before the Gunners blew them away.
And 19-year-old England international Walcott, scorer of the second goal within 11 minutes, said: "All the teams will look in Europe and see the 5-2 win, Arsenal away, with a young team and I think the other teams will be scared to play us."
He added: "That's the impression we want to give out to all the other teams. We do that and we have always got them on the back foot and hopefully we can just keep performing like that."
With a defence missing three first choices in William Gallas, Kolo Toure and Bacary Sagna there were always going to be a few lapses but it was the attacking strength of Arsenal which got them through.
The result also probably puts them within one win of making the knock-out stages.
"It was absolutely brilliant. The main thing was getting the three points and everyone got their jobs right and we scored five goals and it was nice to see us taking our chances," said the former Southampton youngster.
"This young team has had a lot of experience at Champions League level now.
"Everyone got their jobs right - we studied Fenerbahce and how they play.
"We knew their fans would be right behind them but we quietened them down straight away by scoring two very early goals and it was a brilliant performance."
