Szczesny - My top save of the season

Wojciech Szczesny rates his save from West Bromwich Albion's Saido Berahino as his best of the season.

The Poland goalkeeper did as much as anyone to earn Arsenal a 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns in October when Claudio Yacob's first-half header was matched by Jack Wilshere's deflected effort.

But it was another deflected shot that stands out for Szczesny - the one from Berahinho in the 14th minute which was heading for one corner of the net before hitting Mathieu Flamini.

Szczesny did superbly to transfer his weight and dive full length to keep the ball out.

"My favourite was the save at West Brom away from home from a deflection," Szczesny told Arsenal Player before the FA Cup final. "Crystal Palace away, maybe Man United at home from [Robin] van Persie's header as well.

"There are saves in particular that I really remember but the games I enjoyed the most were not conceding against Tottenham home and away.

"I've not kept a clean sheet at White Hart Lane before, I don't think I've kept one in a north London derby before this season so that was the highlight for me."

Szczesny shared the Golden Glove with Chelsea's Petr Cech after keeping 16 clean sheets in the Premier League and the Arsenal No 1 believes he has made a sizeable step forward in the past year.

"I think mainly my consistency [has improved]," he said. "I knew I had a good game in me before but I can have a longer run of good games without making mistakes.

"I think crossing is the one area where I've really improved"

"I think crossing is the one area where I've really improved. I've seen the stats and there have been a lot [of crosses] where I've come out to either catch or punch away, so that was a positive. I tried to come and help defenders out at set-pieces and they seemed to appreciate it.

"Of course I've had my highs and lows. I think the positive for this season is that there has been more highs than lows. But I've seen the improvement I've made, I've been more consistent and even if I had a bad game - it was only one or two - it was never for a long period of time.

"I managed to get back to the right level of performance so I've been satisfied but I can't really say I was happy with a season where I didn't win the Premier League. That was the main aim for me before the season."
