When I say three games I am assuming first of all that Arsene Wenger starts with Wojciech Szczesny in his Arsenal team to play Monaco away next Tuesday and in the FA cup semi-final and final, if we get there. And that will probably be it for the Poland international, unless David Ospina suffers an injury or forgets how to keep goal before the end of the season.
Shezzer has been a Gunner since he was 16-years old and four years later he was our first choice. But his career has been dotted with dips in form, lapses in focus and costly errors, so he has not become the dominant number one that he was hoping for. Despite saying that he would like to spend his whole career at Arsenal, I don´t think he meant as the back up so I would not be surprised to see him leave if he cannot change Wenger´s mind before the end of the season.
His latest chance was against Man United on Monday and while he made some good saves and stopped four of the five on target and could not be blamed for the goal, Szczesny did flap at that cross and gave possession away needlessly at times. He is going to have to do better than that to oust Ospina. A fantastic game in Monaco would go a long way to getting his place back, especially if it helps Arsenal make a miracle comeback, but he is running out of time and games.
Do you think Szczesny has lost the top spot for good?
