Arsenal have only picked up two points in their last three outings – despite a decent performance in Europe.
“I am definitely surprised by our position in the league, because when you have the quality of our players, we should be fighting for trophies and we do have one of the best teams in the Premier League,” Szczesny told the Gunners’ official website.
The Polish keeper added: “Our fans do not deserve to see us 10th in the table, but…

Szczesny made his return to the first team after two months on the sidelines and hopes that the win can prove to be a catalyst for the Gunners season.

The 22-year-old has been out of action for six weeks with an ankle injury, though he has now made his return to full training.

The 21-year-old told Arsenal’s official website: “I believe we will finish third. Man City have lost their chance of the title – it was a big blow to us last year and they might drop a little bit, so who knows maybe we…

Goalkeeper Magazine’s Friday Favourite Goalkeeping Video this week is Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny’s fantastic double save from Dirk Kuyt’s penalty against Liverpool last week.
After initially giving away the penalty – a harsh decision possibly? – the Polish shot-stopper then made amends with a fantastic save from the spot-kick, he instantly followed that up with a show of stunning agility to get back up and keep the rebound out, too!
Arsenal went on to win the game 2-1 – so much of the thanks must go to the 21-year-old for this save…

The Poland international was straight to the point in his assessment of the alleged player power at Chelsea following Sunday’s sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, which has left the club looking for an eighth manager in eight years.
Szczesny did not mention any names but captain John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole have been the three English regulars at Chelsea in recent years and are widely perceived to have a considerable influence at the club.
The 21-year-old also said that he doesn’t believe the issues at Chelsea would ever…
