Arsene Wenger will rest a handful of his key Arsenal players for tomorrow night’s Champions League clash with Olympiakos at the Karaiskakis Stadium.

The Gunners are already through to the knockout stage and cannot lose top spot in Group F which has prompted Wenger to leave Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott, Wojciech Szczesny, Laurent Koscielny and Gervinho at home.

Young gun Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who impressed so much in the Carling Cup quarter-final loss to Manchester City last Tuesday, has been included in the squad alongside experienced players Thomas Vermaelen, Andrey Arshavin, Yossi Benayoun, Sebastien Squillaci, Johan Djourou and Tomas Rosicky.
