Wenger to try out two youngsters for Europe League tie at BATE Borisov

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that he will pick an experienced team for Thursday night's Europe League tie at BATE Borisov even though the team travelled without a number of their first team regulars Wenger says that while he expects to field a youthful bench, only one or two youngsters will start the match.
Arsenal beat Cologne 3-1 in their group opener at the Emirates a fortnight ago but a changed line-up will be in action on Thursday. Wenger is understood to have travelled without Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka, Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolasinac, Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal. The senior players include Per Mertesacker, Jack Wilshere, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.

He said “I said on Monday night after the 2-0 defeat of West Brom that I would play an experienced team with a young bench. We have a very tight schedule and it is an important game, and that's why there is only one or two young players who will start.”
