Wojciech Szczesny is hoping that Arsenal can continue their excellent run of Barclays Premier League form when they visit Manchester City on Sunday.

The ‘keeper has been one of the outstanding performers for the Gunners this season, and knows how crucial Sunday’s game is with the table-toppers.

“It is very important that we keep going now. We believe that we can win every game," said Szczesny.

“We have a massive game against Manchester City coming up. They will be favourites this time but we are confident we can go there and get the three points.

“It is probably the toughest game of the season but people were saying that last year and we won 3-0. We hope to repeat the performance and hopefully the result as well.”

The Polish international was happy that Arsenal were able to grind out a scrappy victory against Everton on Saturday, although the pre-match celebrations of the club’s 125th anniversary - which included the unveiling of three legends statues at the Emirates - overshadowed the match somewhat.

Robin van Persie’s wonder goal saved the day though, and Szczesny was pleased with the scrappy manner of the victory.

“We said it in the dressing room that it is good to win ugly every now and then. We did not create a lot of chances and missed a couple in the first half. But we stuck together and got the all-important winning goal," he added.

“It is vital to win these kinds of games - especially in December when there are a lot of matches and it is easy to drop points.”
