Eduardo ready to cover for injured Arsenal star van Persie

Robin van Persie's injury has given Eduardo the opportunity to step in as replacement striker for Arsenal. Persie has led the line in style, notching seven goals in 11 Premier League outings, as the Gunners have made steady progress, but the Holland international is now out injured for up to six weeks.

"The boss knows our qualities and how they can fit into a formation," Eduardo told the Evening Standard.

"For me it is fine to play on the left or the right, no problem, the most important thing is to help the team and I feel good in those positions.

"It is a formation that gives us more movement and more creativity through the middle, although it is not easy because we have to balance defence and attack and that can be difficult."
