Wenger weighs up keeper options

Lukasz Fabianski will be hoping he has done enough over the previous four games, to have not only convinced his manager that he deserves to be ahead of the injured Manuel Almunia, but also prove to Wenger he can stop looking for a new keeper altogether. Fabianski has done his case no harm with a impressive performances against Partizan Belgrade, Birmingham and more recently Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Polish stopper is enjoying his time in the first team saying, "I've had a small run of four matches now and I think I'm pretty confident on the pitch now. I think it's always good for a keeper that he plays regularly and hopefully I can continue improving."

Football Betting pundits note how it remains to be seen whether Wenger has been fully convinced by Fabianski’s first team credentials and the Frenchman will probably be still keeping his options open in regards to his number one. Out of favour Manchester City keeper Shay Given has been linked with a January move to the Emirates as has Ajax’s Maarten Steklenburg.

With every other aspect of Arsenal’s team looking strong, Wenger will be desperate to finaly cure his long standing goalkeeping issue once and for all. As it is though Fabianski still has time to continue to attempt to prove his worth to Wenger.

After eight games gone so far this season, The Gunners find themselves in a decent place in the league and the Football odds believe they can mount a title challenge. Wenger’s men will face a stern test this upcoming weekend, when they travel to Eastlands to take on Manchester City. A win will be essential if Arsenal are going to be able to keep pace with the league front-runners.
