Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes the Gunners are to win all their remaining English Premier League game if they are to cut the gap at the top.
Speaking to Arsenal TV Online ahead of the Emirates game against Stoke City, the 20-year old explained that tonight’s game is massive, a tough game which the Gunners need to win in order to keep their title hopes alive. Asked if there is any margin for error, the youngster replied by saying there is none as losing games in such a crucial period of the season could be fatal in all competitions.
On last Sunday’s one all draw away at Leyton Orient, Szczesny revealed everyone was disappointed not just for failing to win but also for conceded a late goal which means another fixture in the month of March.
The Pole did not feature in the F.A. Cup but is expected to start tonight with centre back Laurent Koscielny, midfielder Abou Diaby and striker Robin van Persie are ruled out but expected to be fit for the weekend League Cup Final against Birmingham City.
On today’s game, Szczesny said:
[Stoke] is a massive game for us, we need to win every single game to make sure that we catch Manchester United. It will be a very tough game but we’re confident going into win and we believe we’re going to win.
Exactly, [there's no margin for error], we need to make sure that we win every single game. We’ve been playing quite well recently and we seem to be catching up. We only made up one point so far but we believe we can win all the current games.
There’s not a lot in the Premiership at the moment because we play all the Cup games and we need to make sure that we win every single one to catch up. If we lose a single game we could be out of the title race or out of the Champions League so we have to take it game by game and we’re going to make sure to do our best in every single game.
We are very disappointed after [the Leyton Orient draw] because not only we drew the game but the circumstances didn’t help because it looked like we were going to win it but they scored with a couple of minutes to go. So we’re disappointed but we’re confident when they come to our place we can win the replay and get through to the next round.
