Wojciech Szczesny wants Arsenal to take a 'big step' forward in their stuttering season
Wojciech Szczesny is hoping that victory over Manchester United on Saturday can kick-start Arsenal’s season.
The Gunners are fifth in the Premier League table after a shock 2-1 defeat at Swansea City before the international break.
We didn’t score a single goal against them last season, so that’s something that we’re looking to improve
But the Arsenal number one says the mood in Arsene Wenger’s squad is good, urging the Gunners to take a big step forward in their season.
“The international break probably came at a good time for us, because we needed one,” Szczesny told Arsenal’s website.
“We’ve come back, everyone is in a good mood and we’re looking forward to a big game on Saturday. It’s a big one for us.
“Whoever you come up against in the Premier League looks forward to the game. Every team plays attacking football and wants to get the three points. No team really comes to defend.
“It’s always exciting and with the quality of the players in both teams and with both teams really fighting to get three points it should be a very exciting game.
“Our history against Manchester United recently hasn’t been very good. We didn’t score a single goal against them last season, so that’s something that we’re looking to improve.
“Hopefully this will be a step. It could give us a big push to go and challenge for the rest of the season.”
