Read some extra quotes from Arsène Wenger's pre-match press conference. For more headlines, visit our Digest page.
on whether Hector Bellerin will be offered a new contract…That is true.
on whether it will impact on Carl Jenkinson’s Arsenal future…Will it impact on Carl Jenkinson? At the moment in my head, no.
on whether he will rotate against West Ham…I haven’t decided yet but I will certainly be faithful to what I did until now, rest one or two without interrupting the balance of the team.
on how the Monaco game affects team selection…I agree that the Monaco game is a very important game in the Champions League. Tomorrow is of the same importance. That’s why I just have to focus on tomorrow. What can affect my team selection is the players who have played a number of game this season. I always rotate game by game but never more than two or three.
on the best age to start playing football…The best age is five years old to learn the basics of the technique. Between five and 12 you have to learn all the basics of the technique. The only advice I can give a coach is to never forget that the best coach is the game, so let them play.
