Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone feels he's done enough to be regarded as the club's No1.

Mannone insists he deserves to remain Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper despite the imminent return of Wojciech Szczesny.

“I have done my maximum and then it is up to the manager,” Mannone told the London Evening Standard.

“I think I have done well enough to keep my place. I would like to push on from here. Obviously it is up to the boss and all I can do is work hard in training and in the games and try to give a hand to my team-mates.

“I have gained a lot of confidence from these matches because every game is like a cup final. The experience is unbelievable."
