“He has started his career with the desert,” said Wenger. Key clash Lionel Messi v Alex Song: Wenger is not keen to adopt man-marking tactics even for the exceptional case of Lionel Messi, meaning Arsenal must collectively neutralise his threat. Even so, Alex Song will have particular responsibility for breaking up Barcelona’s passing and restricting service to the current European and World Player of the Year.
