Wojciech Szczesny has admitted that Roma are ‘feeling the pressure’ after recent results.
Speaking before Roma’s game at Palermo, which they won 3-0, Woj said, “I think the three points tonight are worth three points and that’s it.
“We try not to look at other results. We just have to focus on ourselves and not what the other teams do, and that means beating Palermo.
“We are feeling a bit of pressure after recent results, as that’s inevitable after three consecutive defeats, so we’ll try to wipe the slate clean and start again.”
The win will have helped Roma steady their nerves but they still find themselves eight points behind leaders Juventus and only two ahead of third-placed Napoli.
As for Szczesny, he’s doing his part.

He’s matured like an aged salami and his cleansheet at Palermo was his 12 in 28 Serie A games. In total in the league, he has conceded just 25 goals while his distribution and concentration have improved vastly.
In fact, he’s done so well Arsenal would be incredibly foolish not to return him to the number one slot at the club immediately upon his return in the summer.
