Some final pre-Arsenal v Portsmouth thoughts:
- I’d like to see us rotate today. Cesc Fabregas, Bacary Sagna and Denilson have all had niggles while Robin van Persie looks a little flat and I wouldn’t mind seeing two or three of them given a break. If Eduardo is fit I’d like to see him start.
- One player that wouldn’t make sense to rotate is Andrey Arshavin. He’s been quiet in the opening two games but he’s also yet to complete a full 90 minutes. He should be fighting fit and ready to go again today.
- Arsene Wenger wants us to “dictate the game” and I’d have to agree with that. A home game against a struggling Portsmouth is one we should win and win comfortably.
- On another subject, the manager has confirmed we won’t be signing Brede Hangeland. Case closed.
