Update: That should of course read ‘Eduardo back, Rosicky out’. My mistake.
Some quick pre-West Ham thoughts and news bites:
Eduardo has been confirmed in the squad by Arsene Wenger, Tomas Rosicky is out. Nicklas Bendtner is still 50:50 while Philippe Senderos will be in the squad for the first time this season.
I still want Manuel Almunia back in the team tonight and these comments from the manager suggest it might happen: “I wouldn’t say Manuel is no longer our automatic first choice [but] Vito has come in and done well.”
It seems Abou Diaby has his feet planet firmly on the ground. He recently made some comments about being very different from Patrick Vieira – specifically stating that he is less aggressive and not as physically strong.
A quick pre-game tip: 2-0 to the Arsenal. Come on boys (and Liverpool)!
