Gunners stopper says he is still yet to regain top form.
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has admitted he is still trying to find his top form as the Gunners continue to pursue a place in the top four and Champions League glory.
The Pole has been suffering from a “lack of confidence” according to boss Arsene Wenger but, despite links with a string of keepers in January, the Frenchman has kept faith with his number one.
Szczesny was much improved in Arsenal’s gritty 1-0 win at Sunderland on Saturday, pulling of a string of dramatic late saves to deny the Black Cats a deserved equaliser.
The shut-out at the Stadium of Light was the 22-year-old’s second consecutive clean sheet but the youngster still think he needs to improve.
“I still struggled a little bit on crosses so I would have been happier with a faultless performance,” the custodian is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.
Szczesny believes the result demonstrates that Arsenal have the character to overhaul rivals Spurs and claim a place in the Premier League top four.
“We showed people we have what it takes to be successful and showed character and desire to get the result,” he added.
