This is exactly the kind of headache that Arsene Wenger would like to have in every position as he now has to decide whether to keep Wojciech Szczesny in between the sticks now that his compatriot Lukasz Fabianski is fit enough to be reinstated in the Arsenal starting XI.
Many Arsenal fans wanted Lukasz Fabianski to be sold last summer after his many moans about being left on the bench behind Wojciech Szczesny, but since being given the first team jersey the Gunners have registered five wins in a row and he has rarely put a foot wrong.
Goalkeeping spot? It’s Up For Grabs NOW! by AH
The last two games have seen one Polish international goalkeeper take over from another, as Lukasz Fabianski has reintroduced himself into what looks like a rejuvenated Arsenal team. Just like his Arsenal career his performances are inconsistent and this seems to be one of his main flaws, however this could be the time he needs to step up for the team as we push to regain a top 4 spot and Champions League football for another consecutive season.
The Reina Rumour Returns by AH
The whispers that Arsenal are looking to sign Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has plagued the Arsenal transfer rumour mil for the last two weeks and they always say there’s no smoke without fire. There may be some truth in this story, as I believe Arsenal is looking to sign a new goalkeeper despite already having 5 goalkeepers in the first team squad.
The jury is still out on whether Vito Mannone is accomplished enough to be Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper, and it seems that he is about to be usurped by the returning Wojciech Szczesny very shortly.
