Will Wenger Stand Between RVP And His Dream?

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger seems worried about the possibility of an injury occurring to Dutch striker Robin Van Persie before he can finish the year and stop fighting for the record.

Shearer’s 36 goal record has been in Robin’s mind and on everybody’s lips for quite a while now and Wenger’s afraid that the striker might make an obsession out of this and perhaps even get injured.

‘It will be a big demand for him, but I don’t know yet, we will assess the situation after every game,’’ said the manager.

Wenger announces Champions League plans.

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger made his intentions for the Champions League group stage game against Olympiakos public after the Gunners managed to secure the first spot qualification following the win against Borussia Dortmund.

As everybody expected the Frenchman won’t be wasting the energy of regular first team players on a game which has no real stake, so we can expect the likes of Robin Van Persie, Ramsey, Song, Arteta or Theo Walcott to be rested and some of them won’t probably even make the bench.
