Arsenal's goalkeeping situation has been a hot topic this week following Lukasz Fabianski's night to forget in Porto.

If anyone could empathise with the Pole, it was Vito Mannone. He watched Wednesday's events from the bench and and gave his verdict on the 2-1 defeat when he spoke to Arsenal TV Online the following day.

Subscribers can now watch our exclusive interview with the Italian stopper. Vito discussed:

  • how Fabianski was after the game
  • the perils of being a goalkeeper
  • needing a run of games to find form
  • his spell in the first-team this season
  • biding his time for another chance
  • signing a new contract in January
