Arsenal keeper Szczesny: Lewandowski a close friend

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny admits they must be wary of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski ahead of tonight's Champions League clash.

Szczesny reveals the pair are good friends.

"Certainly Lewandowski is one of the best you can find in Europe so he will be dangerous, but we played against them before [in 2011] and we've handled him quite well so I hope we can do that again.

"Me and Robert [Lewandowski] are very good friends, we speak on a daily basis and he's excited to come here, I'm excited to play against him and it will be a good challenge. We will forget the friendship for now and I'm sure it will be fine after the game.

"It makes it more exciting but other than that I'll treat it like every other game and be professional and prepare in the same way. Hopefully we will get the same result that we've been getting recently."
