Arsenal keeper Szczesny: We were thrashed by Man Utd? Are you sure?!!

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says he's already forgotten their thrashing at Manchester United.

Many young keepers would be mentally scarred by August's 8-2 trouncing which ­threatened to send Arsenal into meltdown - but not Szczesny.

He said: "I don't ­remember that game at Old Trafford, I don't know what you're ­talking about!

"It really doesn't ­matter to me. I just focus on every single game and what happened in the past, happened and I forget about it.

"Whether we lose 1-0 or 8-2 we still get the same amount of points. We lost that game, we were disappointed, but I was over it very quickly.

"I wouldn't say I was embarrassed, I'd say disappointed.

"You are always disappointed when you concede a lot of goals - although it really doesn't matter to me how many we concede as long as we win.

"At Chelsea last weekend, I'd much rather win 5-3 than lose 1-0.

"We've got a few good results but we still have a point to prove and I think you have to judge us over the course of the season."
