Wojciech Szczesny will have no lack of motivation for Arsenal’s final game of the season – as he wants to claim the Premier League Golden Glove award.
The prize goes to the top-flight goalkeeper who has kept the most clean sheets in one season – and the Arsenal No 1 and Petr Cech are locked at the top on 16 each.
However, with the Chelsea stopper injured it offers Szczesny the chance to win the award for the first time if he does not concede at Norwich on Sunday.
We've had a fantastic defensive record at home and we kept it going here. That's something that we want to keep next season.Wojciech Szczesny
“I think I'm level with Cech, and I must admit it was in my head for the last 10 or 15 minutes of the [West Brom] game and I didn't want to concede,” he told Arsenal Player.
“We've had a fantastic defensive record at home and we kept it going here. That's something that we want to keep next season. If I win the Golden Glove I would love it but it doesn't matter right now.
“We knew that we didn't have to win this game but I think it's always better to leave on a high. The fans are going to go home happy and it's a good taster before the FA Cup final.
“That's what it's all about now. We want to prepare for the cup final, obviously we've got the Norwich game, which we want to win. But we want to focus on winning the trophy for the fans because they've been incredible for us this season and they deserve the trophy.”Copyright 2014 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
