Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is convinced they're on the brink of a new golden era for the club.

And he is delighted that boss Arsene Wenger is in talks over a new ­contract ­following the club's flying start to the season.

He said: "It is important for us to know our manager is staying.

"There are players here who have had ups and downs and he has shown trust - and we are ­trying to repay that.

"That is very important - the stability of the club and the trust we have in our manager. We have been together for a long time and we know each ­other - on and off the pitch. It ­always helps."
