Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny goes into Monday night's encounter with revitalised Wigan at the Emirates Stadium with a ringing endorsement from manager Arsene Wenger.

Wenger believes 21-year-old Szczesny, who has kept five clean sheets in his last seven matches, can become one of Europe's top goalkeepers.

Wenger said: "The talent was always there but he is maturing quickly. I like that he is a good communicator. You have to adjust, it's important to find a balance. I wouldn't like to say publicly what he needs to do, I'd rather tell him myself. Overall he has the basic talent to be a top class keeper. How far he goes will depend on how much he wants to improve."
