Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is lamenting the tight match schedule that will see his side play three games in seven days.

After Alexandre Lacazette's brace saw the Gunners beat West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League at the Emirates on Monday, Arsenal will travel to Belarus for Thursday's Europa League clash with Bate Borisov.

After that, Arsenal will host Brighton in another important EPL fixture early on Sunday.

Wenger said he has a decision to make as at the moment, the schedule is a bit cruel.

"We play Monday night, we play in Borisov on Thursday, and we play Sunday morning. We have to accept it, but I will go with a team of senior players and certainly a young bench. There's no need to talk to the Premier League because it is television who decides.” Wenger said.
