Wenger to Experiment with 'Experienced Team' against BATE

Premier League giants Arsenal have already qualified for the Europa League elimination phase and play host to BATE Borisov with nothing to fight for in this dead rubber. Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck will likely start, and the pair will be hugely motivated to put on a good display given their lack of game time this term.

Giroud's case is one of concern for the forward as he is yet to start a top-flight match this season, something France assistant coach Guy Stephan has warned could cost him a spot in the 2018 World Cup squad.

The German defender picked up a minor thigh problem during the 3-1 loss to Manchester United last Saturday and had to be replaced in the first half.

What's more, Gunners have been installed as favourites to win the game at the Emirates with Arsene Wenger expected to give another run out to his fringe players.

But Wenger will surely be more concerned about having fresh players for their visit to Southampton on Sunday than beating BATE in a clash that can not change Arsenal's status in Group H.

"It is not ideal for your balance, the way you fall down, for a footballer it's not great", said the Frenchman. He had a test on Friday morning, then even when he went to the game we weren't sure if he would play. "I think we missed an opportunity on Saturday to take advantage of that, because we were physically quite strong in the game".

Alyaksandr Yermakovich's men will be banking on their impressive away record where they have won six of their last nine matches outside Borisov Arena to record a fine win at odds of (6.50).
