Nicklas Bendtner will be on the sidelines for three weeks due to injury

Arsenal striker, Nicklas Bendtner, who sustained an ankle injury in his last match against Cardiff City, will be on the sidelines for three weeks. Because of his injury, the English Premier League (EPL) leader Arsenal will be short of fit strikes. The 25-year-old Denmark international joined his fellow Olivier Giroud who missed the New Year’s Day match due to his ankle injury. However, the club manager, Arsene Wenger, has refused to make a quick move to buy a new striker on January transfer window.
Nicklas Bendtner was forced to leave the field after sustaining an injury in the process of scoring the opening goal for his club in the 88th minute.
There is no possibility for the tall striker to play on Saturday’s FA Cup third round tie at home against Tottenham Hotspur while Giroud’s inclusion is under question mark.
Arsenal football club is also deprived of the service of Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Kieran Gibbs and Tomas Rosicky who are also suffering from injury.

Good news is that Lukas Podolski has made his comeback after recovering from injury. His inclusion will help strengthen the attacking position. However, they are not enough as the club needs more specialists to play through the middle.
