Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists that he will play an "experienced" side in the Europa League tie with BATE Borisov on Thursday night, despite taking a youthful squad to Belarus.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that he will play an "experienced" side in tomorrow night's Europa League tie with BATE Borisov.

The Gunners made the trip to Belarus earlier today with a travelling squad featuring many of the club's academy players, including Josh DaSilva, Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Matt Macey and Chuba Akpom.

Speaking to the media this evening, the Frenchman has promised fans that he will be taking the tie seriously, despite the fixture coming less than 72 hours ahead of their next Premier League game against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday afternoon.

"I said on Monday that I would play an experienced team with a young bench - that's what I'll do," he said.

"We have a tight schedule. It's an important game, only one or two young players will start.

"It's a good test for the young players. They will have to cope with that intimidating atmosphere. It will be very loud."

Arsenal go into the game top of group H after overcoming FC Koln 3-1 in their group opener earlier this month.
