Wojciech Szczesny is intent on beating Blackburn this weekend and is clearly wanting to open his trophy account by going on to win the competition. The Polish international said: “As you know, we’re desperate for a trophy – so we hope we can give our fans something to cheer in the FA Cup.
“It’s massive for us. We’re three wins away from a final at Wembley now so we’ll give it everything.”
“I really don’t care about goals conceded as long as we win the game – I’d rather win 3-2 than draw 0-0, for example.
“I’m going to make saves and make mistakes, too.
“But I’m doing my best and just want to make sure I’m as consistent as possible. At my age, that’s something you really want to achieve.”
With Bayern Munich coming up in midweek, it is certain that Wenger will be making some changes for the (easier?) game against Blackburn, but the 22 year-old is not worried which defenders line up in front of him.
“I think you understand that players rotate for different competitions – we have a lot of good options in our squad.” he said. “All our defenders have similar qualities so it doesn’t really make a difference who plays.
“As a goalkeeper you have to try and organise your defence in every game and that doesn’t change.
“I’m used to each of our players and how to play with them.”
With Kosciely injured and Vermaelen likely to be given more time to rest his ankle, Szczesny is likely to find himself organizing a very different back four against Blackburn, but surely we can keep our winning run going against the Championship side?
