Arsenal, after losing to Chelsea in the League Cup seemed to be heading for a downward slide in their recent blistering form. However, they have bounced back with wins over Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund to put them in a strong position in both the English Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.
Another stern test beckons for the Gunners, as they will face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday. Although this United team will be without the famous Manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, but they still represent a significant threat to the Gunners’ title ambition.
David Moyes has managed to overcome a poor start to the campaign to guide the club to 8 matches without a defeat, after coming under a lot of criticism for his poor displays at the start of this season.
Szczesny has said in an interview with Sky Sport “We are looking forward to Sunday now and we will be trying to make it a perfect week for us.
“There is not a better time for us to go to Old Trafford. We are very confident and enjoying our football, so we are looking forward to it.”
Arsenal have been previously criticised for not being defensively sound in the big matches, while they also appeared to lack resilience.
They have shown in the last two matches that they appear to be finding the balance that is required to win titles. They have kept clean sheets in the last two matches and Szczesny is looking forward to more of the same against United.
