Eduardo In Line For Blackburn Clash

Eduardo In Line For Blackburn Clash

Arsenal's big summer signing looks set to finally make his Premiership dubt this weekend when Arsenal travel up North for the first time this season to face Blackburn.

The Brazil born striker suffered an ankle injury only a couple of days before he was due to play for Arsenal against Fulham on the opening day of the season.

He also missed Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Sparta Prague in the Champions League qualifiers on Wednesday.

Arsene Wenger also confirmed that Denilson is ready to return to first team duties after recovering from a slight ankle injury.

Speaking to Arsenal TV Online Wenger said: 'The players who come back available could be Denilson and Eduardo.'

The only down side is that there is a slight doubt on Manu Eboue's fitness after he picked up a slight ankle injury during Arsenal's win over Sparta Prague.

Wenger confirmed: 'From last night we might have a little problem with Eboue, who is struggling a bit.'

Tho Dudu looks class, if it does'nt work I think Bendtner is built for this type of fixture.

Still waiting for Adebayor. He and RVP compliment each other prefectly. But this is good news because RVP cant do as well alone up top. For me Rosicky loses his place in the side. What you all think?

Eduardo looked very good against Ajax and I hope he will start the game along side RVP
17/08/2007 00:52:00
Yep GK if we have a formation of 442 then Rosicky will be warming the bench but if again it is a 451 then Rosicky will start
17/08/2007 00:54:00
I think Eboue should lose his place and Rosicky should go to the right with Hleb on the left.

Eboue may even wont travel as he is ijured
17/08/2007 01:04:00
Surely it now has to be RVP on the right, Rosicky on the left with Fab and Hleb supporting Eduardo...4-3-3 when attacking and 4-5-1 when defending.

Niko, from what I have seen Dudu is a strong Mo' Fo' anyway, so I don't think we need worry who ever starts up front.
17/08/2007 02:22:00
So, I think that means the starting lineup against Rovers will be: - Lehman - Sagna - Gallas - Toure - Clichy - Theo - Cesc - Denilson - Hleb - Dudu - RVP

Could Arsenal Star Have Signed A Pre-Contract With AC Milan?

I'm certainly not saying that's the case, but with Jack Wilshere's contract at Arsenal still sitting on the table, it's a strange set of quotes from AC Milan's Gennaro Gattuso.
