Szczesny: Arsenal Look Forward To Big Games

Arsenal goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny, says his side are looking forward to the Gunners' daunting run of February fixtures and praises his back four for Arsenal’s success.

Their 2-0 over Crystal Palace and last night’s 1-0 victory of Chelsea over second-placed Man City, ensured that Arsene Wenger’s men moved back to the summit of the Premier League.

The Gunners are on a 10-match unbeaten run in all competitions, but with fixtures against both Liverpool and Manchester United in the Premier League, the Reds in the FA Cup and Bayern Munich in the Champions League, February will be a make or break month for Szczeny and his side.

"I love it. I think every player looks forward to big games against big opponents and world-class players so it is very exciting,” the 23-year-old said.

"It is a difficult run we have got, but we look at it as a chance to create an even bigger gap between us and the teams behind us so hopefully we can show people what we are made of."

Arsenal have conceded just one goal in their last 11 home games and kept seven clean sheets since losing 6-3 to Manchester City. The Arsenal goalkeeper believes his back four are the reason for the Gunners' successful campaign and could prove the difference in the title race.

"Our defensive record, especially at home has been fantastic and we know that if we keep clean sheets we have got every chance of winning the game," he added.

"Over the last couple of seasons we have had less luck with injuries. I never played with the same back four for more than two or three games whereas now we play with the same back four, sometimes we rotate the full-backs but in general we stay with the same defence.

"We read each other and it is a very good understanding that we have."
