Szczesny set to start against Stoke City
Goalkeeping hotshot Wojciech Szczesny looks likely to start against Stoke City on Saturday, giving the Pole another chance to stake his claim for their Arsenal number one jersey.
20-year-old Szczesny, who was a surprise starter at Old Trafford, admitted he was relishing his time in the spotlight and looked forward to taking his upcoming chances in goal.
“I really enjoyed it,” he said. “I felt some kind of pressure before the game but I didn’t feel nervous at all. Overall I enjoyed it, apart from the result.
“I’m the reserve keeper and I have to take every chance I get. This was a massive chance for me, to make my debut at Old Trafford and I thought it went pretty well. Unfortunately it didn’t help us to get any points. But this is my big chance and I intend to take it.”
