'I have total confidence in my keepers'

Arsene Wenger has no qualms about recalling Wojciech Szczesny for the Everton game because he has "total confidence" in all of his goalkeepers.

Szczesny could return to the Arsenal line-up on Tuesday with Lukasz Fabianski a major doubt after sustaining a rib injury during Saturday's 3-1 win over Norwich City.

"Fabianski's reflexes, his positioning and his decision-making has been great"

Last month Wenger admitted that Szczesny "needed a breather" but he believes the Pole and Vito Mannone can step up whenever they are required.

"I have total confidence, no matter who starts the game," said Wenger. "In the past I have shown that, that I trust these players and trust that no matter who plays, they will show their quality.

"We have three good keepers. That's been shown during the season. Everybody had the ability to show his quality and that's what you want."

Wenger has been impressed by Fabianski since drafting him into the side for the 2-0 win at Bayern Munich last month. And Szczesny has also caught the manager's eye.

"Fabianski's reflexes, his positioning and his decision-making has been great," said Wenger. "We will decide as late as possible [on his availability.

"[Szczesny has responded] really well. He worked very hard and worked very well. I do not want to make a case of it before the game. He's handling the situation very well and in a positive way.”
