Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has told his defensive teammates he's proud of them.

Per Mertesacker and co came together to secure a point at Borussia Dortmund this week.

Szczesny told "I said to the guys after the game, 'listen, we defended fantastic', and if you're going to concede that is the way you want to do it. It was a deserved draw for both sides.

"We gained a point in Dortmund in one of the toughest fixtures, which will give us a confidence boost. Hopefully we can go to Blackburn and get the three points."
