Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has explained why he dropped several players for the Europa League clash with Slavia Prague.
Gunners captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli all started from the bench.
Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe all came back into the team, as well as Granit Xhaka, Willian, Hector Bellerin and Cedric Soares.
“We had to pick the right team to try and start the game in the best possible way and as well have the options to change the game.
“In Europe we have the possibility to make five subs and that’s a big thing. We want to use our full squad in the best possible way,” Arteta told BT Sport.
The Gunners missed a host of great chances to score, before Nicolas Pepe came off the bench to score what looked like a late winner.
However, Slavia equalized in the dying minutes through Tomas Holes.
