Team News: Arsenal V Burnley – Wenger rotates again

Arsene Wenger has rotated his side once more for the visit of Burnley, with injuries and suspensions claiming Sol Campbell and Alexandre Song from last weekends win over Sunderland.

Denilson returns from injury to replace Song, while Mikael Silvestre is in for Campbell. Andrey Arshavin and Abou Diaby return from knocks but are only fit enough for places on the bench, while Samir Nasri and Tomas Rosicky form an exciting left sided partnership. In form Nicklas Bendtner leads the line.

Almunia
Eboue – Vermaelen – Silvestre – Clichy
Fabregas (c) – Denilson – Nasri
Walcott – Bendtner – Rosicky

Subs: Fabianski, Sagna, Traore, Eastmond, Diaby, Arshavin, Eduardo.

Fabregas has been taken off for an injury, hamstring apparently! I’d guess 3 weeks out if its a strain. Let’s hope its just a precaution.

my guess is that fabregas went off as a precaution as he was feeling it before he scored…. bendy should have scored atleast 2 and nasri having a blinder 😀 3-1 my prediction

no one knows if he injured or not, we could just be saving him for the next game, 1-0 up against a shit side so we could be resting him

We know how Bendtner is…it could say “unpredictable”?…I’ve said that before…I don’t like B-52, I hope Arshavin comes in NOW. We have lost 5 goals at least…

Although NB52 was frustrating by missing those chances at least he was always in the right areas. I think he makes it hard for himself because of the way he talks about his ability…If you do that you have to back it up but i am backing him to get on the scoresheet against porto.Today just wasnt his day… As for Theo he was absolutely immense i really hope capello watches todays game because theos wingplay was superb and wan*ers like chris waddle can do 1. He had a point to prove today and he done it emphatically!! Up the… Read more »

lay off Bendtner. Sometimes it’s just not his day. I remember a similar game last season where he got tons of chances as easy as these. It’s probably a mental block. If he had scored in the first half he would have had a hat trick. Great player and the team is much better after he returned. Not the greatest of games but Nasri and Walcott were world class. Sylvestre is terrible, just horrible player. Clichy, I though, also had a bad game, often on the wrong side of players. If it hadn’t been for Vermaelen I don’t wanna know… Read more »

Fortunately for us, Burnley isn’t an attacking team, or better said, they don’t have attacking players, but today was precisely Vermaelen who lost Nugent at Burnley goal, and all our defence was very unconsistent today, but, compared with notorious mistakes of Clichy, Eboue and specially Silvestre, TV5 is our best defender so far, although he has to play at right back instead his natural left back. And aditionally he scores and tries to go forward, it’s clear that we need Gallas & Sagna back soon and I hope that Cesc & Song will be able to play CL game.
