Wojciech Szczesny believes the Premier League is still as good as it’s even been after England’s top division witnessed a dramatic conclusion to an enthralling title race and relegation battle this season.

Sergio Aguero’s late strike helped Manchester City complete a comeback against Queens Park Rangers and secure the three points needed to wrap up their first top flight crown since 1968.

Meanwhile, QPR managed to avoid relegation to the Championship despite their 3-2 defeat at the Etihad after Bolton Wanderers could only manage a draw at Stoke City.

In addition, Arsenal finished in third place ahead of north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United courtesy of a 3-2 win at West Bromich Albion on the final day of the season, which secured their place in the Champions League.

“I think you just have to give credit to the attacking players in the Premier League – some of the players we have in this country are as good as there have ever been and that’s why you see teams scoring and conceding a lot of goals,” Szczesny told Arsenal’s website.

“I like to believe that football is becoming more of an attacking game and it’s good for the league. It’s so tight that everyone goes into a fixture believing they can win it, no matter who they’re facing.

“Look at Wigan when they beat both us and Manchester United – they went for it, and got their rewards. It’s becoming more offensive, the mindset of players and teams is different and the quality is as good as we’ve ever had.”
