Video: Nicklas Bendtner helps Arsenal cruise past Porto
Gunner finds his accuracy
Now we know why Nicklas Bendtner didn’t take his shooting boots to the match last weekend – he was saving himself for last night’s match against Porto. The Arsenal striker came in for yet more criticism in the wake of his string of missed chances against Burnley, but found the perfect remedy with a hat-trick in the 5-0 victory over Porto.
His three goals were such a turnaround in form that The Sun has published an apology to him. OTP would like to see a bit of consistency before we resort to grovelling!
And even if the thought of a Bendtner hat-trick doesn’t appeal, make sure you watch the video above to see Samir Nasri’s stunning, Ginola-esque third goal.
