Our featured played Nicklas Bendtner has shaken off a ankle problem in time to face Birmingham, where he arguably made his name and became ready to be an established first teamer at Arsenal. Nicklas had a great time at Birmingham, just ask Birmingham fans the impact he had there scoring 13, and being 1 of their most key players throughout their promotion campaign.
In other news, Swede Sebastien Larsson, previously at Arsenal now at Birmingham has praised Nicklas he has said . . .
When he was at Birmingham and even when I was with him in the Arsenal youth team, you knew he had something special and he could go on and become a very good player.
When people do criticise you, which happens quite a lot at a big club like Arsenal when you don’t do well, then you have to keep believing in your own ability.Nicklas has always been a confident lad and believes he can play at the highest level. He has obviously done that and come good now. He has proved everyone wrong who doubted him in that spell.
Playing for a club like Arsenal you have to deal with the pressure of trying to win things and winning every game.
He has learned to deal with that as he has done very well lately.
Likely line up:
Sagna Campbell Silvestre Clichy
Walcott Bendtner Arshavin
