Bendtner Hits Last Minute Winner To Keep Arsenal In The Race (See Goal Here)
Nicklas Bendtner has recently made a habit of saving Arsenal at the death, he done it again this afternoon against a battling Wolverhampton Wanderers side. Nicklas didn’t start the game because he wasn’t 100% he had been feeling his ankle a little bit from the midweek game against Barcelona.
Arsenal dominated long periods of this game, but Wolves looked dangerous on the counter attack at times with Doyle’s pace testing Sol Campbell. The first Arsenal chance fell to Eduardo, Theo Walcott started off from where he finished against Barcelona by running at the Wolves defence causing all sorts of problems he squared it to Eduardo who’s shot was saved by American Hannemhan.
You could sense Arsenal needed a substitute in the last quarter to spice things up, Nicklas was the man introduced into the fray and started positively with some clever runs in behind the Wolves back four. Samir Nasri and Vela were then introduced, Arsenal started to look more dangerous with more intent in their play. Karl Henry was given a straight red for a dangerous tackle on Tomas Rosicky.
The Fourth officials board went up, it was nail biting times for Gunners fans, he announced there would be 5 minutes added on. Time was running out for Arsenal as Walcott layed it back to Sagna, who whipped a magnificent ball into the area for the towering 6″4 striker to guide it home with a perfectly placed header. One thing for sure, if Arsenal win the Premier League this season they’ll have to thank Nicklas Bendtner for quite a few crucial goals late on. Nicklas has now 10 for the season, an impressive goal return from a 3 month spell on the sidelines through injury.
