Arsenal keeper Fabianski learning from experience and how to cope with errors

Arsenal stopper Lukasz Fabianski believes the experience he is gaining from being a regular first-team player is helping him cope with the kind of error he made against Newcastle. Fabianski came in for plenty of criticism after Andy Carroll's goal doomed the Gunners to a shock weekend defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

But he put the blunder behind him to earn Arsenal a vital 2-0 win at Wolves on Wednesday night.

The 25-year-old made a stunning save from Wolves defender Christophe Berra in the closing seconds when only one goal divided the sides before Marouane Chamakh netted his second.

Fabianski said: "To be honest, I have played for some time and have not been looking bad in goal.

"I was not happy with what happened against Newcastle but overall I have still felt in good shape.

"I was not thinking about 'bouncing back from Newcastle' and was only focused on having a good game here and helping the team.

"I think I'm getting experience which is really important for a keeper and that experience is helping me to prepare for another game.

"I don't know what will happen when Manuel (Almunia) is fit but I will keep doing my best and helping the team and we will see what happens."
