The Press Association are reporting that Wojciech Szczesny has not been fined and dropped following his performance at Southampton, contrary to suggestions made on Danish television at the weekend by former Gunner John Jensen.
Working as part of the commentary team that covered yesterday’s victory over Hull City for channel 6’eren Jensen had claimed that the Pole’s behaviour in the dressing room after the defeat at Saint Mary’s, a match in which he made two serious mistakes, had so infuriated manager Arsene Wenger and assistant Steve Bould that there was a chance he might not play again this season.
Szczesny didn’t feature in the win over Hull, which was hardly a surprise given second choice keepers, in this case David Ospina, have regularly been deployed for cup competitions in recent years.
Szczesny won the Golden Glove award for the most clean sheets in the Premier League last season, shared with Chelsea’s Petr Cech, and has made 176 appearances for the Gunners since making his debut in 2009.
We wait to see who is between the sticks on Sunday when Stoke’s orcs visit the Emirates.
