Arsene Wenger hints that he will rotate his squad for Arsenal's trip to Napoli in the Champions League tonight.

Arsene Wenger has hinted that he will rotate his squad for Arsenal's Champions League trip to Napoli tonight.

The Gunners need to avoid a heavy defeat in Italy to reach the last 16 of the competition, while a draw will see them finish at the top of Group F.

"We will [try] to rotate a little bit at times, but never more than two or three players because the stability of the side is so important," Wenger is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"When you play so many games, sometimes in one game you have a feeling the legs are a bit tired, but sometimes the game after they surprise you again and everybody has recovered."

Arsenal have won six and lost one of their previous group fixtures.
