The Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny has only just returned to the team after injury but it has coincided with a couple of good wins for the Gunners at last. Also the great Jack Wilshere has returned to the fold, Bacary Sagna has also fully recovered and Kieran Gibbs is also expected to return this week.
The Polish keeper thinks that the last couple of wins have put Arsenal back on track, but he won’t be happy that everything is back to normal until we get another couple of wins under our belts. He said: “We have only had a couple of good results.
“We want to get a longer run of good results and good performances and then we can start talking about the real Arsenal.
“At the moment we’ve got the momentum we just want to keep it going now. We want to show in our performances how good we are.
“You have your ups and downs and we had a tough couple of weeks recently. But we came back stronger than ever against Tottenham on Saturday. We want to enjoy that moment for as long as we can. It’s normal that we have ups and downs.”
It is probably no coincidence that Arsenal recorded just their second clean sheet since the beginning of September with Szczesny between the sticks. I am not saying that Mannone is rubbish, but it always helps to have your first choice keeper. Mannone has done well and has probably ensured that Szczesny keeps on his toes, so we have a lot to thank the Italian for. If Szczesny’s presence, and the return of Gibbs can stop the nervousness in the Gunners’ defence, there is no reason why we cannot win every game until January, and then make a serious assault on the Premier league title.
