Arsene Wenger says he will not rest players for Tuesday night's Champions League play-off against Fenerbahce.
Arsenal hold a healthy lead over the Turkish side going into the return leg after winning 3-0 in Istanbul last Wednesday, but Wenger insists that his team will not be taking their opposition lightly at Emirates Stadium.
"It says it all [that I won't rest players]. It shows how important it is to us"
"It will be stability in the team," he said. "Maybe one or two who are a bit injured [will be rested], but 95 per cent of the team who played at Fulham will play [on Tuesday] night.”
“It will show consistency and, therefore, I'm already focused today to go into this game with full commitment. For me, top-level sport is just about consistency.
“It says it all [that I won't rest players]. It shows how important it is to us. It's of course a very, very, very important tie for us.
"We want to be in the group stage the next day, and that demands attitude and commitment and desire to play the game with full power, like we love to do.”
