Arsenal No1 Szczesny wants to silence Borussia Dortmund wind-up merchants

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is determined to silence the wind-up merchants after conceding eight goals at Manchester United.

Szczesny, 21, whose team suffered an 8-2 hammering at Old Trafford 15 days ago, was grateful for a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 win over Swansea.

Days earlier, while on international duty, he received stick from right-back Lukasz Piszczek, striker Robert Lewandowski and midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski, who all play for Borussia Dortmund.

Asked whether there had been some banter with the trio, Szczesny said: "There has been a little bit, I'm not going to lie. I think two of them will be playing on Tuesday and the one who was the loudest, Jakub, will be on the bench.

"They've been taking the mickey out of the 8-2 defeat but they can't get into my head. I will be focused. I hope after the game I will be the one who comes out on top with the banter."
