Teenager Starts As Wenger Makes 11 Changes | Expected Arsenal XI vs BATE

During the early stages of Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United, Mustafi was forced off with the injury and Wenger has ruled the centre-back out of contention for the Europa League meeting with BATE Borisov.

On Thursday, however, they play host to a BATE Borisov side who need to pick up three points to keep alive their hopes of reaching the round of 32.

They have a poor record away from home in European competition having won just two of their last 24 matches on the road.

The Gunners secured top spot in their Europa League group last time out in the competition despite their narrow 1-0 defeat by Bundesliga side Cologne.

Meanwhile Gunners and Saints fans face travel misery on Sunday as all train lines in and around Southampton will be closed due to maintenance work taking place with a replacement bus service available.
