Arsenal’s goalkeepers are repaying Arsène Wenger’s faith in them, according to the Arsenal manager.

Wenger was consistently linked with a move for a stopper during the summer but regularly reiterated his confidence in the keepers already at the Club.

This judgement seems to be paying dividends with Lukasz Fabianski producing the best form of his Arsenal career.

The Pole made a number of vital saves against Manchester City in the 3-0 win on Sunday and seems to be showing everyone what the manager claimed to know all along. Not that Wenger is resting on his laurels.

“I think yes [my faith has been justified] - one thing you cannot fault is my faith,” said the manager.

“It is not won and we have still to show consistency in the performances but it’s good that the keepers are showing they are as good as I think they are.

“My faith has been questioned and I wouldn’t like to go overboard too much on what some people said but you just hope that what you believe is right comes out and recently we have made progress.”
