Cesc takes it so easy.. The MOLE.

Byline: David James

ARSENE Wenger knows best and the proof will come at the end of a long campaign next May.

But many fans are beginning to query the non-selection after World Cup duty of key men Cesc Fabregas (left) and Robin van Persie.

Given punters have paid pounds 1,000 for a season ticket their views are relevant. But Wenger maintains that after World Cup exertions his stars need more rest.

The problem is, while Spain won the Final on July 11, Fabregas -on the bench again yesterday - only played 126 minutes in the tournament.

Dirk Kuyt is already back and playing for Liverpool this season yet he was a regular in the Holland side that lost the Final. In fact, he was in action for 587 minutes.

England may have flopped and come home early but Wayne Rooney was in action for 342 minutes and Steven Gerrard for 360.
