Wojciech Szczesny believes he has become “much more commanding” of his penalty area in the last 12 months.
The Poland goalkeeper won the Golden Glove in May after keeping 16 clean sheets in 37 Premier League games, and lifted his first senior trophy with Arsenal four days later.
Szczesny has continued to impress with mature and dominant performances in the first half of this season, but he believes there is still room for improvement in 2015.
"There’s been ups and downs but overall I’m happy and I’m looking forward to 2015"
“I’m more experienced, I like to read the game a little bit more,” the goalkeeper told Arsenal Player.
“I still make the odd mistake with decision-making but I am 24 and I’ve got a long road ahead of me to get better and hopefully I’ll do that.
“I like to read the game, I’m much more comfortable commanding my area and coming for crosses, so in general I do feel that my game is improving and I just try to work every day to make sure it gets better and better.
“There have been ups and downs as usual. Obviously winning the FA Cup was the highlight of my career and probably most of the lads’ in the dressing room.
“We also came into 2014 confident of winning the Premier League but our league form dropped at the first part of 2014. That was disappointing but other than that it was good that we won a trophy for the first time.
“Then we had a very good game in the Community Shield, which was another trophy. There’s been ups and downs but overall I’m happy and I’m looking forward to 2015.
“[Winning the Golden Glove] was a nice feeling. It’s standing there somewhere on the shelf at home. It looks alright but I enjoyed winning the FA Cup much more. It’s a nice thing to have but the FA Cup is far more important to me.”
