Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he will field a mixture of first-team players and youngsters against Shrewsbury Town in the Carling Cup on Tuesday.

The Gunners host the League Two club in the third round of the competition at the Emirates Stadium and will hope to bounce back from their 4-3 away defeat to Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League on Saturday.

Wenger, who led Arsenal to the final of the Carling Cup last season, has said that he will hand full debuts to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ryo Miyaichi.

"I will be faithful to our policy but I will try to find a good mixture between youth and experience," said Wenger on Arsenal's official website.

"You will see the likes of Ryo and Oxlade-Chamberlain. You should be excited about Oxlade-Chamberlain because he is a great talent.

"My target is to develop him so he confirms the expectation I have for him."
