Arsène Wenger says Barcelona striker Bojan is a special player.

The 19-year-old striker is expected to start in place of the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night but the Arsenal manager says the players are "completely the opposite".

Ibrahimovic injured his calf in the warm-up ahead of Barcelona's 4-1 win over Athletic Bilbao on Saturday. Bojan was the man called into the starting XI and he responded by netting a brace which helped the Catalans reduce the goal-difference gap on Real Madrid at the top of La Liga to just one strike.

Bojan has scored in each of his last three Barcelona appearances and Wenger is well aware of the threat he poses.

"I think he is very mobile, tricky, short and agile and has quick feet," commented the Arsenal manager.

"That's what makes him different and special. You would say he is completely the opposite of Ibrahimovic who is more physical."
