Bendtner targeting goalscoring success

Nicklas Bendtner has vowed to get the goals which will keep Arsenal firmly in the Premier League title battle.

The Danish striker has struggled with injuries in recent months but has come straight into the first team after recovering as both Robin van Persie and Eduardo are out of action.

Even with the injury crisis which has hampered Arsene Wenger's team this season, Arsenal are still well-positioned in the title race, sitting six points behind top of the table Chelsea and five behind Manchester United with a game in hand.

Bendtner claims Wenger was right not to sign any new strikers during the transfer window despite the injury problems which have affected his forward line in recent months.

This crisis saw Arsenal line up in matches against their title rivals with Andriy Arshavin as a lone striker.

Bendtner said: "All I have to do now is show him he made the right choice. I'm sure he has and I've got to show it on the pitch."

"It's difficult obviously being out, despite whoever else is out. It's difficult. Coming back for me was really important."

Bendtner's team-mate Theo Walcott recently claimed Arsenal are still firmly in the Premier League title race and are well-positioned to put in a big push over the final months of the season.

The football betting odds suggest the Gunners are still in with a chance, but they have a lot of work to do.

Meanwhile, Bendtner will be hoping he can stay injury free so he is able to take part in this year's World Cup.

Denmark's 2010 World Cup odds suggest they could struggle to make it out of a group which also contains Cameroon, Netherlands and Japan.
