Szczesny eyes Dortmund revenge

The Gunners suffered a humiliating 8-2 thumping at Old Trafford 15
days ago with 21-year-old Szczesny between the sticks. That
thrashing meant the young keeper received stick from Dortmund trio
Lukasz Piszczek, Robert Lewandowski and Jakub Blaszczykowski while
on duty with Poland for the recent internationals. And he is
determined to gain revenge when Arsenal travel to Germany for their
Champions League opener against the Bundesliga champions on Tuesday
night. Asked whether there had been any teasing from his
compatriots, Szczesny told The Sun: “There has been a little bit,
I’m not going to lie. “I think two of them will be playing on
Tuesday and the one who was the loudest, Jakub, will be on the
bench. “They’ve been taking the mickey out of the 8-2 defeat but
they can’t get into my head. I will be focused. I hope after the
game I will be the one who comes out on top with the banter.” The
Gunners have endured a slow start to the new campaign, taking just
four points from their opening four Premier League games. But
Szczesny remains certain the North Londoners can finish in the top
four this season and challenge for the title. He added: “I’m
confident we can achieve a top-four finish and I’m also confident
that, if we stick together and do the right things, we will be
title contenders.”
