Bendtner is a definite to start…Flamini won’t start according to Wenger even though he wanted him to…and I think Eduardo may get the nod up front if Wenger plays 4-4-2. He may go with 5 in midfield with a central 3 of Fabregas, Gilberto and Diarra or Denilson. He could also play Walcott up front but I think Wenger may want to give Eduardo a go up front in the champions league which probably suits him better for the moment since he is still apparently “settling in”.
We have already qualified but Sevilla will want to get revenge for our 3-0 victory at home. It may be a good chance for us to see the likes of Traore, Diarra, Denilson, Bendtner. Bendtner did well against Wigan when he came on so let’s hope he can have a positive impact tonight. I would like to see him played with another striker rather than be stranded up front on his own, even though he is very strong as a lone striker. Eduardo or Walcott may like to play just off him so it could be interesting.
However, I think the fact that we are away AND we have already qualified….gives Sevilla a slight advantage. Sevilla are the bookies favourites but without jinxing it…My personal feeling is not the same. Other interesting matches today include Lyon vs. Barcelona and Stuttgart vs. Rangers who still have a chance of getting through to the next stage.
