Arsenal, who visit Southampton tomorrow, will be England's only representatives in the Europa League's Round of 32 draw on Monday.

The Gunners brushed aside BATE Borisov in the Europa League last night, with goals from Mathieu Debuchy, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Olivier Giroud, Mohamed Elneny, along with an own-goal from Dzyanis Palyakow, earning them a comprehensive 6-0 victory.

When it was put to him whether he had approached the game's authorities, Wenger said: "No but I think there is a job there to respect the fairness of the competition".

"You can say the opponent was not at the level of the Premier League and I would agree with you but you can only do your job and that's what we did, in a convincing way with remarkable spirit and finished well the job in this group stage".

Praising the performance of Wilshere, Wenger said that the fans can expect to see more from the player as he will be playing in more and more games for the team in the near future.

Arsene Wenger took the opportunity to introduce Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah into the action as Arsenal looked to equal their European scoring record of seven goals, but he watched on as his team struggled to create chances in the final 10 minutes.

"You can see he thinks with a different perspective and I personally feel this is the most mature, balanced Wilshere I have seen".

BATE coach Aleksandr Yermakovich admitted his side were not ready for the Arsenal onslaught as their season ended in heavy defeat.

"We had that last week", the Arsenal boss said.

"We were not prepared for this match, we were trying to play for our fans and play attacking football, sadly it didn't happen".
