Bendtner Scores As Arsenal Through To Semi Finals Of Carling Cup + Video
An Own goal from Wigan defender, Alcaraz and a second half poacher’s finish from Nicklas Bendtner was enough to seal Arsenal’s passage into the last 4 of the Carling Cup.
It wasn’t the best of games this evening, You got a feeling in the blizzardy conditions that it was always going to be a tough night in hard conditions. Arsenal were adapting to their makeshift 4-4-2 formation, where Bendtner and v.Persie partenered each other up top.
Nicklas Bendtner worked very hard tonight, and was playing just ahead of v.Persie, It wasn’t NB52’s greatest game nor was it his worst, it was a decent display from the Dane game was quiet drab and the whole team wasn’t really getting the flowing passing going. Bendtner’s hard work paid off with a typical ” no.9#” finish coming in at the back post with a sliding finish.

Hopefully Bendtner will now get more opportunities to lead the line in Arsenal’s more newer 4-3-3 formation. It is Bendtner’s 3rd goal of the season in only 5 starts.
