Arsène Wenger insists he will not be resting players for Tuesday night’s Champions League clash against AC Milan.

Arsenal head into the second leg with a four-goal deficit after a poor first leg at the San Siro but Wenger is backing his players to give it their best shot against the odds.

“It is not an argument for us,” said the Frenchman. “We want to have a real go tomorrow, we want to make it possible.

“I would not be very credible to tell you we want to score five goals and then leave Robin van Persie out.

“We will not accept going out of the Champions League because we want to stay in. We will give it our best shot tomorrow.”
