Wenger wants Arsenal youngsters to take chance

If that appeared any sort of platform to build upon, it swiftly meant little when in the 22nd minute, BATE goalkeeper Scherbitski sloppily passed the ball under minimal pressure to Walcott, gifting him the close-range finish with which he scored.

Sloppy defending once again saw Wenger's men concede in the 67th minute, but they held on to make it two wins out of two in the Europa League.

Theo Walcott had a great chance early on as he was put in by Jack Wilshere but could his effort with the outside of his right-foot came back off against the upright.

Belarusian club FC BATE Borisov enter Thursday after a 1-1 draw against Red Star Belgrade in their first group-stage Europa League match of the season.

BATE keeper Denis Scherbitski received a pass back, then hit it straight out to Walcott 15 yards from goal, and he drilled it back past him.

Rob Holding turned home Per Mertesacker's header from a corner to make it 3-0 after just 25 minutes, though Borisov quickly pulled one back through Mirko Ivanic's superb headed effort.

Willock will have no doubt have expected a far more physical game of football than he is used to but Bate's Nemanja Milunovic took things one step too far.

The five-time German Player of the Year has already rejected a £225k-a-week deal by Arsenal and has been said to want a signing on fee of approximately £6m, seemingly dismissing any chance of Inter Milan signing Ozil.

Arsenal continued to dominate after the break and made it four after incredibly soft penalty award.

It is clear where Arsene Wenger's priorities lie this season, considering the weakened squad that he has taken out to Belarus, but nothing less than a win will do for Arsenal.

Walcott made it 2-0 midway through the first half after an bad error by BATE goalkeeper Denis Scherbitski, who miscued a clearance straight to the England forward.

Holding's attempted tackle in the penalty area rebounded up, Mertesacker stumbled and Mikhail Gordeichuk slammed the ball into the roof of the net.
