Arsène Wenger says he will be "faithful to his policy" in the Carling Cup Quarter-Final clash with Manchester City even though Mark Hughes says he'll put out a full-strength side.
After beating West Brom and Liverpool in the previous rounds, the Gunners will travel to Manchester on December 2.
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."
Arsenal suffered a 2-0 defeat away to Burnley at this stage of the competition last season and will be hoping to go one better when they return to the North-West in the Carling Cup next month.
