Olympiakos v Arsenal preview

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has chosen to rest several first-team regulars for Tuesday's final UEFA Champions League Group B tie against Olympiakos in Athens.

With the Gunners already qualified for the knockout stage, England duo Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere have both stayed behind, along with Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker.

Youngsters Zak Ansah, Sead Hajrovic, Elton Monteiro, Chuba Akpom and James Shea are all in contention to make their senior debuts.

Olympiakos defender Jose Holebas serves a one-game ban after collecting his third yellow card of the group stage on matchday five in the 1-0 defeat at group leaders Schalke.

Meanwhile Northern Ireland goalkeeper Roy Carroll could come into the side to face the Gunners.
