Wojciech Szczesny believes there is “no better time” for Arsenal to be facing Manchester United ahead of the Gunners’ trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.

The north Londoners sealed a famous 1-0 victory at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday as they took control of their Champions League group, four days after having secured a 2-0 win over Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger’s men head to Old Trafford looking to keep their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table intact.

And goalkeeper Szczesny is in confident mood heading into the showdown at Old Trafford.

“It’s been a good week for us so far,” Szczesny told Arsenal Player. “[We’ve had] two clean sheets and two results against two quality opponents, one away from home at one of the toughest venues in Europe, I believe.

“Real Madrid got battered here [in Dortmund] last year so it’s a good feeling to come out of here with three points.

“We’re looking forward to Sunday and we’re going to try and make it a perfect week.

“It would be an amazing week to get nine points out of the three games. Probably not a lot of people expected us to do so.

“There’s not a better time for us to go to Old Trafford, we’re confident, we’re enjoying our football, so we’re looking forward to it.”
