Arsenal’s Polish keeper will take some moving

Lukasz Fabianski is determined to fight Wojciech Szczesny for the Arsenal No.1 spot this season, after declaring himself 'back in business' following his recovery from a long-standing shoulder injury.

The 26-year-old stopper will provide competition for his Polish counterpart after overcoming a difficult period which Fabianski initially thought would only rule him out of action for a matter of weeks.

The injury was sustained in the warm-up against Manchester City in January, but Fabianski still chose to play in the game - a decision that, in hindsight, may have aggravated the problem further.

"I felt I could play against City but three hours after the game I started to feel it," he told "When I did it, I felt a massive pain in my shoulder but then it was gone after one minute. I started to move it around and it seemed to be okay.

"The day after, I didn't train and we played in the FA Cup and Carling Cup so I wasn't really involved in that. Then I tried to train but I dived once and that was it."



Fabianski underwent exploratory surgery in early February and later had an operation to cure the problem, which ultimately resulted in him missing the remainder of the campaign.

"I damaged cartilage and that was really irritating the shoulder," he continued. "They had to clear it and, because it was a bit loose, they had to tighten it up. But now everything feels fine."
