Meade was replaced by 18-year-old Swiss defender Martin Angha for the closing stages, and Wenger feels it would have been a good experience for the duo, but hinted he could yet look for reinforcements when the transfer window opens.
"I feel the young players, you discover them in these kind of competitions we had tonight. They have the quality," he said.
"If everybody is fit we have a strong squad, but in certain areas we are a bit short because we cannot rotate.
"We will see where we stand on January 1 and see what we do."
