Manchester United and Manchester City crashed out of the Champions League in the group stages, while Arsenal and Chelsea have tough tests against Italian sides, AC Milan and Napoli respectively

AC Milan star Clarence Seedorf does not think English clubs should panic if Arsenal and Chelsea fail to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Manchester United and Manchester City both crashed out in the group stages, leaving the London duo remaining.

"No, absolutely not. If English clubs panic at this then Italian clubs would be dead by now!" Seedorf told the BBC.

"It's a cycle, it's a sport. Sometimes, someone else just performs better than you. English clubs cannot expect to dominate all the time - it would be quite boring, and exactly what we dont want to see in football."

Arsenal face Seedorfs AC Milan at the San Siro on Wednesday, while Chelsea will travel to Napoli, who saw off the Citizens, next week.
