This has been a significant year for Manuel Almunia.

The Spanish goalkeeper has been battling for the No 1 shirt throughout 2008 with Jens Lehmann and now Lukasz Fabianski keeping him on his toes. But Almunia remains first choice having established himself as one of the Premier League's most reliable keepers.

In an exclusive interview on Arsenal TV Online, Manuel reflects on his year at Arsenal. He discusses:

  • why 2008 has been a big year for him
  • the battle for the No 1 spot
  • the 'honour' of the captaincy
  • his low point of the year
  • beating Milan at the San Siro
  • his targets for 2009
