More on: Havard Nordtveit

Posted on Updated on


Defender Havard signed for the Gunners last summer, after Arsenal had fought of interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Man. Utd for his signature. He looked a little nervous against Barnet on his debut in July but still put in a good performance and made some decent tackles. He was made reserve captain at the start of this season and went on to play the first few matches of the campaign, scoring a towering header as he had an excellent game at Birmingham City. However, it was a heart-in-mouth moment for the ex-Haugesund youngster as he was injured towards the end of that match and has remained sidelined ever since, although he will be looking to return to action early in the New Year. Wenger has shown great faith in him and even went to watch him in person whilst Nordtveit was still playing in Norway which tells you something. He has played well in the matches he has featured in so far and is definitely a special talent. If he returns in time, he could play in the Carling Cup against Tottenham, but if he doesn’t then he still has time on his side and is one of the best young players in his position at the moment and this has lead to the recent departure of Matt Connolly to QPR.

    You think he’s one of the players most likely to make it at Arsenal from the reserves?

    yes, definitely. if he stays injury-free and can see off the likes of bartley and cruise then he will make it. Gallas is 30 and is getting on a bit, so Havard could make the first team in the next few years

    Havard has given himself 2 years to get into the arsenal side… He was also in startin XI against newcastle and sheffield, but the injuries kept him out. With players missing in the ANC, I can see Nordtveit playing the first tie..
