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

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.

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.

He spent the last campaign on loan at Bournemouth in an attempt to get regular match action but has only played 65 minutes of Premier League football this season.

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.

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.
