Arsenal keeper Szczesny: Mertesacker, Koscielny deserve better press

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny hailed his defence after their win at Cardiff City.

Szczesny says Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny deserve greater recognition for their form.

“I’ve kept clean sheets but there are other players who deserve more credit than me.

“We’ve conceded one goal in November and if Per and Laurent don’t get nominated for Player of the Month then there is something wrong.

“They’ve been absolutely fantastic. It’s a pleasure playing behind them every week.

“It’s very good to have that cushion at the top of the table. But if we want to win the league we must do our job very professionally to beat teams like Hull.”
