Barcelona will be without first-choice striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in tonight’s Champions League quarter-final match against Arsenal, but his replacement, Bojan Krkic, is a player The Gunners’ manager believes possesses a different but equally dangerous threat to his young side.

"I think he is very mobile, tricky, short and agile and has quick feet," commented Arsene Wenger on the club’s official website. "That’s what makes him different and special. You would say he is completely the opposite of Ibrahimovic who is more physical."

The 19-year-old Bojan has found appearances hard to come by this season, but has made the most of the injury to Ibrahimovic by scoring an impressive brace at the weekend against Athletic Bilbao. His latest display is expected to earn him a rare start, in a massive match against Arsenal.
