I have many players available who need competition,” said Wenger.Asked how winning the group would affect his team selection for Thursday’s home match, Wenger replied: “Not too much.

While Arsenal have already secured their place in the last 32, Belarusian side Bate Borisov are one of three teams aiming to finish second in the group to also advance.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.

They trail Red Star Belgrade and Cologne – who face each other in Serbia – by just a point, so for them it’s all to play for.But the form book won’t give them much hope: they’ve won just two of their last 24 away matches in Europe.
