Arsene Wenger: ‘Arsenal youngsters have been outstanding’

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has described the club’s younger players as “absolutely outstanding” after helping the Gunners reach the knockout stages of the Europa League with one game to spare.

The Premier League side have already finished top of Group H ahead of Thursday’s fixture with BATE Borisov at the Emirates Stadium.

Wenger is expected to make sweeping changes to his squad for the sixth European game in succession, but he has insisted that none of his first-team players are officially ruled out of the match.

The Frenchman told reporters: “They’ve been absolutely outstanding. One positive this season is the behaviour of the squad is impeccable.

“We have a quality squad. We will pick a team for each game, nobody is ruled out for any game.”
