Arsenal star Wojciech Szczesny insists he isn't nervous about the Gunners upcoming nightmare run of fixtures in February and is actually excited about them.

Arsene Wenger's side will have their trophy-winning credentials tested strenuously from Saturday, when a Premier League away fixture at Liverpool is followed by a meeting with Manchester United at Emirates Stadium and another meeting with Liverpool in the FA Cup, though this time at home.

To top it all off, the first leg of the Gunners' Champions League last 16 tie with Bayern Munich will take place at the Emirates less than three days after the cup clash with the Merseysiders - four massive games in nine days.

This run has got many believing Arsenal's season could hinge on they perform and fans have been expressing nervousness on social media outlets in anticipation of the run of matches.

However, the north Londoners' number one has no such reservations and is keeping complete faith in his side to come through the matches unscathed.

The Poland international said it was quite the contrary, saying that he was excited about the task facing Wenger's side and the Arsenal squad were looking forward to going up against their rivals.

"I love it. I think every player looks forward to big games against big opponents and world-class players so it is very exciting," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"It is a difficult run we have got, but we look at it as a chance to create an even bigger gap between us and the teams behind us so hopefully we can show people what we are made of."
