Though it’s always going to be near-impossible to eradicate the wackiness from a goalkeeper’s game, Wojciech Szczesny put forward a strong performance against Manchester City on Sunday.
David Ospina has also been signed as an alternative goalkeeper this summer, but the Colombian international is short of fitness, meaning Szczesny keeps his place in goal. The Pole, however, will be mindful of Ospina’s quality. The former Nice ‘keeper hasn’t come to north London to play backup.
Last season proved to be a turning point for Szczesny, and he’ll be keen to continue in the same form throughout this season, starting with the opener against Crystal Palace.
