After last Saturday’s EPL match against Manchester City, Arsenal goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny is in confident mood, and has sounded what looks like a warning to other teams that the Gunners have rediscovered their form.
The match, which saw the Gunners fall behind to a David Silva goal in the first half, saw the Gunners fought back to earn a draw in the second half
after Mathieu Flamini scored the leveler. Had the Gunners started the first half of the match the same way they did in the second, the story, perhaps, would have been different.
Szczesny, who was in goal when Arsenal lost to Chelsea 6-0, and also saw the Gunners concede a needless last minute own goal against Swansea last Tuesday, is now up for the challenge as the team prepares for the remaining few matches of the season.
The Gunners have a key match against Everton, who are 4 points behind them on Sunday. Next Sunday’s match promises to be a tough one as Everton are desperate to make the top 4 this season.
Szczesny, who spoke during a recent SkySports interview, had this to say:
“We have not had a great time in the last couple of games, but it is all
about responding well and that is what we did,” the player said.
“Of course it was difficult times, but we knew if we stuck together,
carried on working properly then a result would come. Hopefully now we can kick on.
“We owed it to the manager, the fans and everyone at the club, ourselves
“We lost 6-0 at Chelsea and that is embarrassing for players who represent this club.
“You want to prove to yourself and prove to everyone around you that you are better than that.
“We have still got a lot to play for, the FA Cup and we are in a decent
position in the league, so we will be on our toes and at our very best to
go on and win all the games.
“I am confident we can have a very good run-in and finish strong.”
Arsenal cannot afford to lose any of the remaining matches as they hope to end 9 years without a trophy. The team has a semi final match against last year’s FA Cup Champions, Wigan on the 12th of April. A win for Arsenal on that day will see us qualify for the final and set up a duel with either Sheffield United or Hull at Wembley.
