Almunia staying but what about Fabianski?

Wojciech Szczesny has established himself as the Number One keeper at Arsenal, but who is going to be the long-term second choice behind him.

His fellow countryman Lukasz Fabianski repeatedly said before Christmas that he wanted to move on this month if he wasn’t given more first team chances at Arsenal, especially as wants to challenge Szczesny for the Polish international place as well.

But there have been NO rumours about him moving on since and with just a few days of the transfer window left he looks unlikely to leave now.

Almunia’s back in the Arsenal squad to face Everton!

All Arsenal fans will be praying that nothing untoward happens to Wojciech Szczesny in the next couple of weeks, as Arsene Wenger has confirmed that both Lukasz Fabianski and the hapless Vito Mannone were both injured in Greece in midweek.

Wenger was discussing the problems to come out of the Champions League defeat, and also confirmed that Arsenal are waiting for specialist tests on Andre Santos’ ankle.

He said: “Santos has an ankle injury so he is out. He will see a specialist in the coming days. Mannone and Fabianski are both out. Mannone has a shoulder problem, he saw a specialist on Thursday night. Fabianski has a nasty cut on his knee.
