Arsenal have been training ahead of their meeting with BATE Borisov on Thursday, and Arsène Wenger was kept busy setting up the sessions for the squad.
Wenger revealed he’d be taking a young squad to Belarus for the Europa League clash. The somewhat new-look team took to the training pitches on a cloudy Wednesday morning.
Perhaps keen to get things going, the Arsenal manager was pictured moving goalposts and cones around to help his coaching staff out.
Presumably not everybody pictured will be involved on Thursday, however, if Arsenal’s previous European outing is any indicator of the side Wenger will put out in Belarus.
For example, Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey all trained, but none of the three played the last match against FC Köln, and I’d expect that the team against Borisov will be a similar one to that night, especially since the trio played on Monday.
Instead the likes of Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson, Marcus McGuane, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Dasilva and other youngsters, all pictured above, are more likely to be involved in the squad, in my opinion.
