Alex Iwobi says Arsenal are confident they can win Group A after seeing off Ludogorets 6-0 at the Emirates on Wednesday night.
The results leaves the Gunners top of Group A after three games although PSG are hot on their heels, level on points after beating Basel 3-0.
The two teams will clash at the Emirates in the penultimate group game on 23 November in what could be a crucial game in deciding which club finishes top of the group.
Arsenal nicked a 1-1 draw at Parc des Princes in September, recovering from going behind early on through Edinson Cavani’s goal with Alexis Sanchez grabbing a late equaliser.
Iwobi, however, says the team are confident they can take all three points from the French champions on home turf.
“Yes, we are confident. We did well at [PSG’s] place and we believe that on our home ground, with the fans on our side, we probably could get the win and probably finish first,” Iwobi told the official Arsenal website.

“We’re not trying to get ahead of ourselves, we’re taking each game as it comes.
“It’s basically our mental side that we were working on. We’ve still added that to our game and we believed if we’re mentally prepared in ourselves for this game that we would do well in November and it won’t be such a tough time, hopefully.”
Iwobi was left on the bench for the clash with Ludogorets and he admits competition for places with the Gunners is fierce this season.
“There’s a lot of talent in this team, and whenever I’m given a chance I’m just giving my best,” Iwobi said. “I just need to make sure I’m on top of my game.
“I’m happy for Oxlade-Chamberlain, he got his chance and Kieran [Gibbs] got his chance as well and they did well. It just shows how much strength in depth, we have.”
Arsenal’s clash with PSG looks very much like being the deciding fixture in the group although following that the Gunners face a tricky trip to Basel – a team they beat 2-0 at the Emirates thanks to a Theo Walcott double.
