Arsenal FC goalkeeper aiming to finish above Tottenham this season
Arsene Wenger is resigned to missing out on the Premier League title after Sunday’s 1-0 defeat against Manchester City, although a Champions League place remains firmly within Arsenal’s sights after recovering from a poor start to the season.

Wojciech Szczesny has been one of the stand-out performers for the Gunners this term, with supporters relieved that their team have finally solved the goalkeeping problem which has plagued the club for several seasons.
The Pole is certainly not short of confidence and reckons that his team will get the better of Tottenham come the end of the season, despite sitting five points behind Spurs at this stage of the campaign.
“Getting above Tottenham is the main target,” Szczesny said in the London Evening Standard.
“We don’t want to finish below them no matter what.
“That’s just my personal ambition because I am one of the fans and so it means a lot to me to finish above them. I am confident we will do so.
“They will slip up eventually. They have been in good form – you have to give it to them – but I am confident we are a better side and will finish above them. Time will tell if they can handle the pressure but they look good at the moment. Hopefully they will drop points in the second half of the season.”
