Porto comes calling and Arsenal is minus Fabregas

Champions League last 16, second leg
Venue: The Emirates Date: Tuesday 9 March Kick-off: 1945 GMT

Fabregas aggravated the same hamstring that caused him to miss three weeks in January. The first time was in the Villa cameo on December 27th, a match in which he scored twice in a 3-0 rout.
During Cesc’s absence Arsenal won against Portsmouth and drew Everton proving that Arsenal’s attack was versatile and multi-pronged.
The Everton match was heading towards a loss when Tomas Rosicky scored an extra time goal.
Today, Rosicky, Nasri, and Arshavin should share the creative load.
Does Arsene go with a 4-2-3-1 with Abou Diaby and Alexander Song adding more protection at the back with Gallas gone? At some point Walcott’s could be trotted out with his return to alacrity and goal scoring form. Wenger can also turn to Emmanuel Eboue to bring a zip down the right flank.
All we need is a win with one goal scored. Surely, even Nicklas Bendtner could manage that. Eboue could serve him on the plate.
Porto have never been successful on English soil and they suffered a 4-0 thumping last season at the Emirates. Lets hope their adverse record continues.
Go Gunners! Win one for Ramsey.
