With many news outlets, including the Mirror, naming ex-Arsenal goalkeeper, Lukasz Fabianski, as their Man of the Match in the Arsenal v Swansea City game, Arsene Wenger commented on the Polish international’s performance against his old club.
Talking to the press after Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat at home to Swansea, the boss praised the ‘keeper but was also quick to point out that Arsenal did their bit in not being able to score.
“He [Fabianski] had a great performance but that sometimes is the case [when a player returns] but I felt our finishing made it a bit easier for him,” he said.
The loss at the Emirates marks our first loss in the Premier League for three months (via the Guardian) and we were probably due one soon. However, most of us probably thought it might be coming against Manchester United next Sunday, rather than eighth place Swansea.
Fabianski has now played more league games for the Swans this season than he played in his entire career at Arsenal – as the match commentators loved to keep reminding us – and it seems the 30-year-old is doing well.
Good for him… I say through gritted teeth.
