picture from www.dailymail.co.uk

Arsenal line up:

                    Fabianski

Toure      Gallas  Song   Clichy

Eboue     Gilberto   Denilson  Walcott

        Adebayor  Bendtner

                                                       First half

Arsenal started brightly and Walcott was looking lively down the left hand side, in the 5th minute Kolo Toure created the first chance he cross for Bendtner but the ball was just a bit to high, Arsenal were passing it around neatly but Everton was giving them little space, in the 14th minute Walcott played a one-two with Bendtner and tried to curl a shot on the edge of the area into the far corner but the ball drifted wide. Bendtner then picked up the ball on the edge of the area and showed great vision to spot Gilberto making a run into the box but Gilberto’s header just crept wide.

 

A few minutes later Everton broke away Manuel Fernandes flicking a through ball to the pacey Andy Johnson, he raced into the area but Fabianski got down well and saved the ball it rebounded away to Alexandre Song who cleared for a corner, from that resulting corner for Everton the ball was whipped in and Joleon Lescott met the ball in the air but Denilson was on hand to clear the ball off the line, Arsenal finished the half brightly and nearly scored when Eboue found himself in the area but his cross come shot was deflected out for a corner.

 

                                                           Second half

In the second half Everton started in an organised way and kept the ball, trying to frustrate Arsenal, Leon Osman had a drive from 20 yards which was blocked by Captain William Gallas, Arsenal made to changes in the 68th minute french wing back Armand Traore, 18, replaced Kolo Toure, Eboue went to right back and Walcott went right midfield and Traore went on the left wing, then Jens Lehmann was brought on for Fabianski for hes final game at the Emirates it was emotional for him which he got a great reception for serving the club for many years.

 

With them two substitutions made Arsenal was looking for the win, Armand Traore was looking bright and was showing good pace down the left, in the 77th minute the goal came from that man again, Nicklas Bendtner :D, he passed the ball out wide to Traore who whipped in a dangerous ball and Bendtner rose highest to meet the ball with an absolute bullet header which almost ripped the net, the Emirates erupted 1-0 to the gunners, Everton then brought on Yakubu and Anichebe to try and force an equaliser it was not gunna come as Arsenal’s back four looked solid it was a good result for Arsenal who look to press Chelsea right down to the wire for 2nd place, Our featured player Nicklas Bendtner scored hes 9th goal of the season and celebrated that by picking up the Barclays Premiership man of the match award.

  1. He will be something special …Arsene had some good words to say about him after the game:

    “Bendtner? Fantastic. I think if you look at Bendtner on the August 1 and Bendtner on the May 1 there is a massive difference. He has become a good player, and if you look at the chances he has created, in the time he plays, and the times he has scored, especially the goal he scored today. You need to understand the game because he’s on the move, he meets the ball, he finishes well. I’m impressed by him.”

  2. yeah, hes doing really well, alot of the fans will see hes other side of his game with the ball on the floor next season, he created so many goals for Lupoli in the reserves, hes on his way to been world class, 16 starts 9 goals that is a good ratio, thanks for the comment vela fan 🙂

  3. I really like this guy ( mostly due to the fact that a managed to take a ball he kickd into the crowd at members day Home :D). Ade and Him will provide quality competition to partner RVP and Theo.

  4. thnx 4 the comment JohnV

  5. Wicked blog matthew.

    Fair play to Nicky, he’s been scoring consistently for the past few games, i’m starting to warm to him, and maybe there could be a partnership with Ade next season that works well?!

    Keep up the good work feller. 😀

  6. thnx 4 the comment Chris

  7. I dont see Ade and Bendtner playing together to much next season as der to similar. Bendtners doing great at the mo though am i right in thinking hes got 4 goals in his last 4 international games?

  8. yh he has four goals in 4 international apps, hes on fire for Denmark aswell as for us, i reckon they can play together there not really that similar imo. i can see the similarities with the height and that but they play alot different. thnx for da comment John

  9. I agree with Matthew they don’t play alike, they are just big. I think any two (Robin, Nicky, Abe and Theo) can play together, it just depend on who were playing and how they are set up. Sometimes to want the two big guys or sometimes you want a big guy and a guy with pace. Great site though, I come all the time I just don’t post but I’m going to start.

    GUNNERS 4 LIFE

  10. thanks d.j, good points there

  11. Bendtner is a true loser no matter what
