Wojciech Szczesny to get full Arsenal debut in Cup against Spurs

Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is set for his first start with Arsenal this week in the Carling Cup against Tottenham.

The 20-year-old is viewed as one of the most exciting prospects at Arsenal and is earmarked to be the No.1 choice for the next decade. He has played one first team match - a year ago in the Carling Cup against West Bromwich Albion.

Arsenal won that 2-0 - and now Arsene Wenger is set to recall him for the clash at Tottenham.

Wenger has a policy of giving young players their chance in the competition, although that meant a 5-1 semi-final defeat at White Hart Lane two seasons ago. Tottenham won that clash 6-2 on aggregate and went on to beat Chelsea in the final at Wembley.
