Arsene Wenger refused to divulge on why he thought Leicester were the only Premier League team to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Foxes are England’s sole representatives in the last eight of the tournament with Arsenal and Manchester City both crashing out in the round of 32 and Tottenham failing to progress from the group stages.

But when asked why the Foxes are the only English team to progress, Wenger said: “There are some obvious reasons but I don’t think people are interested that’s why I don’t want to talk about it.”

When asked if Leicester had benefited from a new manager, Wenger continued: ““You don’t judge managers on three games. I don’t know him but always a manager is assessed over a longer period.

“They have certainly found that confidence but it is difficult for me to assess that because when you don’t live inside the club it is difficult to say.”
