Arsenal's Polish 'keeper Lukasz Fabianski is on the treatment table once again, after cracking a rib against Norwich City.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger yesterday revealed the damage of the 28-year-old's latest injury.

Wenger told reporters: "Lukasz has a crack in his rib, I'm not sure how long or when he will return."

Fabianski injured himself in the Gunners' 3-1 victory over Norwich City the week before last. He had not long made his way back into the first-team, after being out for some 13 months. His latest setback has given his Polish teammate Wojciech Szczesny a lifeline, having been axed by Wenger last month.

With the injuury to Fabianski, it has given Szczesny the opportunity to get back in the fold at the Emirates. 

Wenger commented on Szczesny's performance in last Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Everton.

The Arsenal manager continued by saying: "He had a good performance, I was pleased with his focus, with his sharpness.

"He dealt well with the situation that he faced.

"In our job there is only one way to respond, to practice harder and stronger and show that you are ready for a fight, that is what he did."

Szczesny will have further pleased his manager as he kept another clean sheet in Arsenal's 1-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday, as they continued in their bid for a top four finish.
