Bendtner Given Surprise Arsenal Start

Bendtner

Nicklas Bendtner has been handed a place in today’s starting line-up as Arsenal take on Portsmouth later this afternoon.

The Danish striker hasn’t had the amount of playing time he would of liked this season, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger opted to rest Robin van Persie today and play the gangly frontman Bendtner upfront with Emmanuel Adebayor.

In what is a must-win game for Arsenal, Gael Clichy and aforementioned Adebayor both return to the starting XI – the latter comes back from a suspension.

Almunia
Sagna – Gallas – Silvestre – Clichy
Eboue – Denilson – Diaby – Nasri
Adebayor – Bendtner

Subs: Fabianski (GK), Toure, Van Persie, Vela, Ramsey, Wilshere, Gibbs.

I dont like Bendtner with Adebayor. Just no creativity. Van Persie better have some sort of knock otherwise Wenger is even more of a clown than i first thought.

Bendtner has really good days, but most of the time he has terrible days.

gallas scores a header from a free kick, we look so much more dangerous from free kicks and corners when cesc aint taking them.

nr790 you are a fool. Van persie is the best “link striker” we have. Bendtner is a target man if anything.

Idiot you are simply an idiot bendtner “target man” what planet are you living on. Oh wait i guess your line off thought comes from the fact he is really tall and theefore he is a target man. simply idiotic

You were right Chris about the prediction. Even if it was long overdue! Anyway I though Bendtner would start as RVP looked jaded. Good win
