Arshavin dropped for West Ham trip
January 15, 2011
A pearler missed from Wenger’s presser yesterday afternoon.
“Arshavin will come back after a breather for a few games and be sharper”
Having played both cup games in the last 7 days, and played very much below-par, our little Russian wide man appears to be getting the bench for a week or so.
Not because I don’t rate him, but it’s clear he needs time off the pitch to sort his head out…. why not give Vela a run in his position? It’s high time the mexican superstar was shown some backing and allowed more than 15 minutes off the bench to do his stuff.
I doubt it, the team today is very straightforward with Fabianski out injured and Sagna completing his 3 game ban.

Sagna aside, that is quite possibly the best first eleven we could play right now, and against the worst side in the league, according to the league table, we should be hitting the Hammers hard.
As usual, if we struggle to score the first goal, we will struggle on for the rest of the game.
Score first and early, and we could walk with a 4-1…. or struggle it out for a 1-1 hard-fought slog.
