Wojciech Szczesny will make his debut in this season’s Champions league on Wednesday when Arsenal host the French champions Montpellier on matchday five. The Polish international keeper is in bullish mood after Arsenal saw off Tottenham in the North London derby.
“We couldn’t get a better time to play that game. We are buzzing today, we can’t wait for the next game. We’re confident.
“We’ve had a couple of poor results recently, but we’re back on track and we’re confident that we can get the three points and qualify for the knockout stages, which is the least you can expect from us.
“We want to make sure that we do the job properly and qualify.”
Szczesny knows that he has good competition for his starting place from Vito Mannone and that should keep him on his toes. The 22-year old has a great attitude and is naturally confident, rarely dwelling on mistakes. He has been at Arsenal since 2006 and was delighted to be able to give the fans a great victory over Tottenham to reward them for the great support, even when things were going badly this season.
“I think the team and the fans work as a unit, and they were fantastic, they helped us to get a boost before the game, and helped to keep us going.
“They deserve alot of credit for the result as well. We’re certainly hoping that they can keep it the same and help us to win all the fixtures coming up.”
We will do our best, Wojciech.
