Arsène Wenger will send out a young squad to Olympiacos on Wednesday in search of redemption.

The Arsenal XI in Athens will closely resemble the one beaten 3-0 by Manchester City last week in the Carling Cup Quarter-Final.

With qualification to the latter stages of the Champions League already assured, Wenger is happy to use Matchday Six for educational purposes, especially as the Greek side still have to go through themselves.

"You will see Fran, Wilshere etc," said Wenger. "We played Man City last week and they had a full side out. For an hour we did not suffer at all. After that yes we did. I will try to build a similar team in Greece.

"It will be a great game for them because Olympiacos will play for something. It is another good opportunity to show that we can do better than we did at Man City."
