Szczesny is not worried about the tough fixtures the Gunners have in February.
February is set to be a difficult run of fixtures for Arsenal, who face Liverpool twice, Manchester United and Bayern Munich in three different competitions.
Many critics have said it will be this period that makes or breaks the Gunners’ impressive season to date, but goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny isn’t worried.
“We’re looking at it as a chance to create an even bigger gap between us and the teams behind us. We’re looking forward to it and I hope we can show people what we’re made of,” the Poland international was quoted by the Mirror.
“We’ve got hard games, but every single game in the Premier League is difficult at the moment – there are no weaker teams.
“We’ve got a difficult run but we’re looking forward to it. It’s good to be around the top but right now what we care about right now is being top at the end of May.
“I’m looking forward to the big games, every player looks forward to games against big opponents and world class players.”
Szczesny has been part of a formidable back-line in north London, as the side have put defensive woes of recent years seemingly behind them.
The 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday was the 18th clean-sheet the club have kept this term.
The ‘keeper and the back four of Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Kieran Gibbs have all been widely praised over the course of the year.
However, they will all need to be on very top form if they are to come out of the next month of matches unscathed.
