Wenger will stick with Arsenal kids for Cup date

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he won't change his approach for their Carling Cup quarterfinal against Manchester City.

Wenger has employed a policy of giving Arsenal's youngsters a chance to shine in the Carling Cup over recent seasons and confirmed that isn't set to change regardless of the team fielded by City.

"[It will be] Interesting, exciting and a good test," he told Arsenal TV Online.

"We will be faithful to our policy and of course put a team out who has a good chance to win the game."

The Frenchman also expressed his view that any side capable of winning a tie should be considered a 'full side'.

"If you call a full side 11 top players, then we will play a full side," he said. "For me a full side means a team who has a chance to win any game."
