Lukasz Fabianski hopes cup win can help Arsenal improve league results
Arsenal match-winner Lukasz Fabianski hopes their semi-final win against Wigan can improve the Gunners's league form
Lukasz Fabianski is optimistic that Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final triumph will help the Gunners improve their league form.
Arsenal centre-half Per Mertesacker cancelled out Jordi Gomez’s opener from the penalty spot with eight minutes of normal time at Wembley on Saturday.
Hopefully that win will help us bring the good results back
After a goalless extra-time period, Arsenal booked their place in the FA Cup final thanks to Fabianksi’s heroics, with the Pole saving two Wigan penalties.
Everton leapfrogged Arsenal into fourth place after a win at Sunderland, and Fabianski hopes their cup comeback can inspire a good run of results in the league.
“Hopefully that win will help us bring the good results back,” Fabianski said.
Arsenal’s second-choice goalkeeper Fabianski admitted the Gunners had to contend with a stressful 19 minutes before Mertesacker levelled.
“They were a really stressful few minutes. You could sense it in the crowd. We were trying really hard to come back into the game,” he added.
“After we managed to score the equaliser, you could sense that the belief. Obviously after the penalties, you could see the crowd going crazy.”
Remarkably, Fabianski revealed that he hadn’t done any homework on Wigan duo Gary Caldwell and Jack Collison after the Pole denied the pair in the penalty shootout.
“To be honest, I did some homework but none of them were on my list – the first guys who took the penalties. I was just guessing more than my homework,” Fabianski said.
