Theo Walcott scored twice and Olivier Giroud reached a personal milestone as Arsenal beat BATE 4-2 in the Europa League.
The Gunners boss stuck to his promise to hand his squad players the chance to impress, with Jack Wilshere involved, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Reiss Nelson starting at wing-back and midfielder Joe Willock given a place in the senior starting line-up for the first time.
Wilshere was especially effective early on and set up Walcott to prod in the opener before the forward capitalised on a goalkeeper howler to double the visitors' lead.
Holding converted from point-blank range before Mirko Ivanic got a goal back in a breathless first half hour.
Giroud's penalty restored Arsenal's three-goal advantage and they saw out an important win that keeps them top of Group H.
