Theo Walcott insists that Arsenal's fringe players are doing their best to give Arsene Wenger a selection headache following their 6-0 win over BATE Borisov.

Theo Walcott has claimed that Arsenal's fringe players are doing their best to give manager Arsene Wenger a selection headache.

The Gunners boss made 11 changes to his starting XI ahead of Thursday's Europa League Group H home meeting with BATE Borisov, opting for players that have seen limited game time this season.

Walcott, who had only made 10 appearances for Arsenal in 2017-18 prior to the clash with the Belarusians, got onto the scoresheet as the hosts ran out 6-0 winners.

"The boss told us to enjoy ourselves," Walcott told BT Sport after the game. "We played with a lot of freedom. Defensively we were solid. Obviously, it's nice to get all these goals.

"There is plenty of competition when you play for Arsenal. We are doing our best to give the manager a headache to pick us for the team. We were very professional tonight. We will see in time what's going to happen."

Mathieu Debuchy, Jack Wilshere, Olivier Giroud and Mohamed Elneny also struck for the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium, while Denis Polyakov scored an own goal.
