Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted with Lukasz Fabianski's performance in their Champions League win at Bayern Munich.

Wenger was delighted with the 27-year-old’s composed display, which included key saves from Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller, and the manager believes Fabianski is now a more mature player.

“He played with authority. We know his talent and I’m very happy with his performance,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.

“He has changed a lot, there has been a complete mental transformation in Lukasz's attitude. He is more vocal, has more authority and mentally he absorbs the pressure of the game much better.

“He has a huge talent, which we know all about. Sometimes to go out of the game for a while helps people to mature and think about their own game. If they really want to become a better player, they think, 'How can I become better'.

“I think it is a combination of both [working with him and his own maturity] but I would give him 90 per cent of the credit. He works on all the aspects of his game.”
