Arsenal demolish BATE Borisov in Europa League clash

The French coach has also made it clear that his selection process will not be altered in the New Year as the club's needs will always be first priority rather than the players'.

Arsenal were already assured of their place in Monday's round of 32 draw after securing top spot in Group H ahead of an impressive 6-0 win over the Belarusian champions in front of a sparse Emirates Stadium crowd. Giroud, who is a starter for France, has managed just 234 minutes in the league with all his 12 appearances coming off the bench owing to Alexandre Lacazette's presence as the manager's first choice number nine.

With the England worldwide now behind the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck in the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, it would appear that Everton could have a chance of tempting him to Merseyside.

Walcott has started mostly in Arsenal's UEFA Europa League matches so far this season and is expected to start again today in the final group match against BATE Borisov.

Theo Walcott added to the two goals he scored against BATE in the reversed tie, and the goal was more than he deserved after a fine display, in which I would definitely give him the Man of the Match award. But these are discussions I have had with the players. The Carabao Cup will continue until February, if Arsenal make it to the latter stages while the FA Cup begins in January.

Injuries to key offensive players, such as Yannick Bolasie and Ross Barkley, have contributed to their problems but the general consensus is that Allardyce's predecessor Ronald Koeman and his scouting team failed to adequately replace the Belgian star.

Asked if he would keep the Englishman in January, however, Wenger said: "Yes". They knew we were top of the group anyway and you could basically expect that. When you are called up you have to be ready. He was sick a few weeks ago and after I didn't change the squad.
