Wenger backing Arsenal keeper Mannone

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he has full faith in goalkeeper Vito Mannone.

The 24-year old Italian is set to again deputise for Gunners number one Wojciech Szczesny in tomorrow night's Champions League clash with Montpellier and the French manager is confident he can do the job after keeping two clean sheets in the two Premier League matches he has played so far this season.

"Vito is very close (to the Arsenal number one jersey), and he gets another opportunity now," said Wenger.

"He has belief and he has the mental strength to deal with that."
