PICTURE: Szczesny kisses van Persie’s boot!
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny showed his appreciation for team-mate Robin van Persie after the Dutchman’s winner against Everton – by kissing the captain’s deadly left foot!
Szczesny, 21, has become a fans favourite since establishing himself as Arsenal’s no.1 shot stopper last season, and emphasised his passion for the club following last week’s win at Wigan by singing with the supporters.
van Persie himself is leading the Gunners’ scoring charts with 19 goals to his name in all competitions this season, drawing plaudits from legends in the game including former Arsenal captain Thierry Henry.
Arsenal marked their 125th birthday with a 1-0 win against Everton earlier. Read our match summary and give your view on the game here.
