Theo Walcott Starts - Arsenal Team vs Red Star Belgrade Confirmed

Mathieu Debuchy

The Arsenal boss has used the Europa League, along with the Carabao Cup, to give game time to a number of squad players who have rarely appeared in the Premier League.

That impressive 100% run came to an end on Thursday night (2 November), however, with Arsenal's second-string failing to sparkle during a painfully low-quality stalemate against the Serbian league leaders in north London.

Arsenal have qualified to the next round of the competition but Zvezda sit second and will have to shrug off the challenge from FC Cologne to pick the other ticket after the German side claimed a 5-2 away victory over BATE Borisov.

The Frenchman's team progressed to the knockout stages of the Europa League after taking their total to 10 points from four Group H fixtures at The Emirates. It was a very intense game.

"We have ten points from four games and we want to compete in every competition so we will continue with the rotation policy which has served us well so far".




Asked if he was disappointed with the boos, Wenger said: "No". In the end, we did not see goals.

"It's frustrating when you don't score, but overall you understand that with many young players in the team, that's part of the learning process for them, playing these types of games".

Jack Wilshere grew into the game against Red Star after a notably quiet first half and only an acrobatic intervention from Damien Le Tallec prevented him from notching the victor after the break.

The visitors created arguably an even better chance in the final minute of the first half when Richmond Boakye raced clean through on goal, only to fluff his lines and fire a poor finish wide with only the keeper to beat.
