you assumed Nicklas Bendtner will find a berth among Wenger’s first choices handily after Emmanuel Adebayor’s departure, then the man himself does not think it will be that easy.

The Dane is not expecting to step up as Adebayor’s like-for-like replacement without making an impression on Wenger again next season.

Bendtner who scored 15 goals last term – just one less than Adebayor – will not take his chances for granted and intends to maintain his hardworking ethics.

That is quite an attitude from a man who has just seen the back of a colleague he often had to share elbow room with.

“I don’t know really. It is still the same situation of having to fight for my place because there are still options out there for the manager.” He told Arsenal TV

And with the capability of other strikers among Wenger’s options and the possibility of a new addition, Bendtner admits having more work to do.

“But it is all up to me to work hard to earn my place”
