Arsene Wenger says he will play "quite an experienced team" for Thursday's Europa League visit of BATE Borisov.

Wenger then hit back at Jose Mourinho's constant jibing and accusations of lies told regarding striker Alexandre Lacazette, who played 90 minutes against United despite having earlier been ruled out of the game with a groin injury that forced him off at half-time of the 5-0 drubbing of Huddersfield Town.

They suffered a chastening 3-1 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday that ended a 12-game winning run at home in the top flight. But everybody else looks alright. Mustafi has a little thigh problem, but it's a small one. "It's a possibility - if not Southampton, it will be [for] West Ham", he is quoted as saying on Arsenal's official website.

The Gunners are at the start of the busiest period of the domestic season and have six more Premier League fixtures to play before the end of December.

"I can not consider too much the interest of the national team, even if I support France".

Matt Lauer is 'broken and ashamed' following 'Today' firing
Matt Lauer has apologized for his sexual misconduct in a statement released Thursday morning. Lauer had renewed his contract previous year for a $25 million annual salary through 2018.

"Next week we go into a week with three games and so some players need competition, some experienced players".

Olivier Giroud, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott are set to start.

Thanks to Wenger's rotation policy, Arsenal players should be stronger and fresher, and we have hardly any injuries to contend with for a change.

BATE Borisov manager Aleksandr Yermakovich, meanwhile, has no players missing for the crucial tie, with the Belarusian club looking to spring up a surprise in order to remain in contention for a place in the Round of 32.
