Szczesny: No attitude problem

BY foxsports • February 5, 2011

Wojciech Szczesny claims Arsenal have the right mentality this year, and insists the Gunners fancy their chances of catching Manchester United.

But Arsene Wenger's side are the only English team still in the running for four trophies this term after reaching the Carling Cup final, where they will face Birmingham next month.

In the league, Arsenal are five points behind leaders Manchester United, while in the Champions League, the Gunners face the mighty Barcelona, whom they crashed out of the competition to last season.

But Szczesny believes the Gunners have matured this season and fear no one in their pursuit of silverware.

He told The Guardian: "The league is the priority and we fancy our chances of catching Manchester United.

"Then, there is the Barcelona game, which is a bit surreal for me.

"They are probably the best side in Europe but we believe that we can get something out of it.

"We are a much better team then we were last year. Every single player is a year older and a year better.

"We are a bunch of confident guys and this year, there is no psychological barrier."
