Emmanuel Frimpong says Arsenal's youngsters will be better for their Champions League defeat at Olympiakos.

Frimpong says there are positives to take from the game - namely Arsène Wenger being able to give a few fresh faces some match action.

"It was a great atmosphere and it was lovely to be involved," he told Arsenal Player.

"If the likes of me, Francis [Coquelin] and Alex [Oxlade-Chamberlain] can show we can play here, we can plan anywhere. I know we lost the game but we have to take positives from it.

"People that haven't been getting a lot of games this season have been getting them.

"It was a tough game," he added. "To be fair to Olympiacos I thought they played really well.

"We started off a bit slow, got into the game a bit but it was a bit too late before the half ended. We showed great character to get a goal back and it's a shame we conceded in the last minute."
