The Chile international has made a fine start to his Arsenal career, and has scored five times in his last eight games for the club.
"He's got a massive passion for football," Szczesny told Arsenal Player. "Obviously every single little game you have [in training] everyone wants to win, but there are always a couple of players who are so passionate that they hate to lose and Alexis is one of them.
"If he is losing a game he wants to take the ball, dribble past everyone and score - and he does that pretty well sometimes!"
