Arsenal will play their last game of the Champions League group stage today and as we look forward to the crucial tie, Arsene Wenger has revealed the following team news:

Wenger revealed at his press conference that he will mix up experience with youth. Mathieu Debuchy who had been out and resumed training on Friday will be in the team to play Galatasaray. Szczrsny would start in goal. The likes of Kieran Gibbs, Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud were left behind so that they can have some rest. Danny Welbeck did not travel too as he is presently battling with a minor knee injury.

The two reasons he gave for dropping Alexis are that the Chilean had played 27 games already and besides has a groin problem.

Asked about Jack Wilshere, he stated that the English international has suffered no setback so far. He does not expect him to suffer any since he is not training. Jack will be out for three months.

The below quote from Arsene Wenger and the information already provided above will give you a clue on how the team will look tonight.

Wenger: To make it as simple as possible, I have 11 experienced players and six young players on the bench. That means I have nothing to hide. Debuchy is back with us and will play, Szczesny is back in goal, Mertesacker, Chambers will play because Gibbs did not travel, Bellerin at left-back. Then you have Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Flamini, Podolski, Sanogo and Campbell.
