Before we get to the goals, here are a few Bendtner misses from this game. I felt sorry for the guy at one point. Arsene Wenger sincerely believes he’s going to be a top first-choice starter for Arsenal but nobody else seems to think so. He’s likely to improve over the next 2-3 years and has the potential to certainly be a much better finisher but I just don’t see the composure and coolness in him that is required to be a top goal scorer. Wenger once said that as a striker you’ll never starve at Arsenal and he’s right. Our style of play has always created chances and it’s crucial that we have strikers that make the most of what the midfield and attacking backs like Clichy (and even Toure to a lesser degree) create. Other than his heading ability, Bendtner hasn’t shown enough to deserve a start alongside Van Persie or in place of Vela or Eduardo.
