Arsène Wenger says there are a number of rising stars at the Club who will "certainly" get their chance in the first team this season.

The Frenchman has brought a mix of youth and experience with him to the Far East for the 2012 Tour, presented by Emirates and has been impressed by some of the younger members of his squad.

Chuks Aneke and Thomas Eisfeld both scored against a Malaysia XI, while the likes of Benik Afobe, Nico Yennaris and Ryo have all caught the eye. And Wenger is excited by the new generation of players who are forcing their way into the first-team picture.

"We have some young players who are already experienced, for example if I tell you Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, you will tell me he is not young but he is 18 years old," Wenger told a press conference in Hong Kong.

"Jack Wilshere is 20, Aaron Ramsey is 21 and we have some more young players who might push up this season.

"On tour we have Chuks Aneke who has shown quality and of course Ryo. We also have younger players who are 16 or 17, who are not with us on tour, who will certainly appear this season. We are faithful to what we want to do whicih is to promote young players and give them a chance at that level."
