Szczesny has sent out a warning message to anyone thinking of whining.
There are many that criticise English football for the busy Christmas schedule, with the view that so many fixtures leave players burned out.
In December Premier League clubs can play up to eight matches in 31 days, but Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says this simply ‘separates the men from the boys.’
“I think over Christmas time you separate the men from the boys,” the 23-year-old told the club’s website.
“Over the last couple of seasons we haven’t done very well at Christmas time so being near the top of the table will give us a big motivation to push even harder this time and make sure that we get the results.
“But it’s very tough, you play every two or three days and you need to rotate your team.”
The Gunners are second in the table currently, although have the same points as leaders Liverpool and have looked in good form this term.
Szczesny has been one of the players to really impress in north London this year, along with other developing youngsters such as Kieran Gibbs and Aaron Ramsey.
Their draw with Chelsea on Monday night is followed up with a clash against West Ham United on Thursday and then Newcastle United on Sunday.
Following those two ties the league fixture list will be exactly halfway completed and Arsene Wenger’s men will know how they are faring heading into the New Year, as they look to break their eight year plus trophy drought.
