Wojciech Szczesny: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

February 13, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Szczesny will start Sunday against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup.

Szczesny recently lost his starting job to David Ospina after smoking a cigarette in the dressing room following a terrible outing against Southampton on New Year's Day, and while Wenger said "the competition is open," Ospina is certainy playing well enough to keep Szczesny on the bench during Premier League matches.

Szczesny is on the bench for Sunday's match against Aston Villa.

David Ospina will get his third consecutive Premier League start since Szczesny was fined and benched for smoking a cigarette in the dressing room on New Year's Day after their match against Southampton.

Szczesny will give way to David Ospina for Sunday's match against Stoke City.

Szczesny was caught smoking a cigarette after Arsenal's match against Southampton on New Year's Day, and he'll lose at least one start in addition to the 20,000 he was fined. It is unclear how long the demotion will last, but he'll miss out on a decent clean sheet opportunity against a Stoke side that has struggled on the road this season.

Szczesny was available off the bench for Saturday's match against Stoke City after recovering from a hip injury.

Emiliano Martinez got the start again, but Szczesny is expected to reclaim his starting job for Tuesday's Champions League match against Galatasaray.

Szczesny returned to first-team training Friday, but manager Arsene Wenger would not confirm if he will be available for Saturday's match at Stoke City.

Emiliano Martinez has started the last three games in place of Szczesny, posting three consecutive clean sheets, giving little reason for Wenger to rush Szczesny back before he's fully fit. If he is held out Saturday, he could return Tuesday against Galatasary in the Champions League.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Manager Arsene Wenger said Tuesday that Szczesny (hip) is still three-to-four days away from returning, which rules him out for Wednesday's match against Southampton.

Szczesny suffered the injury Nov. 22 against Manchester United and was replaced by Emiliano Martinez, who picked up his second consecutive clean sheet Sunday against West Brom and is fully expected to face the Saints on Wednesday. Szczesny has a shot to return Saturday at Stoke City, though it's hardly guaranteed.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Szczesny (hip) has yet to resume training, which makes him a serious doubt to face West Brom on Saturday.

With Szczesny unlikely to face the Baggies, Emiliano Martinez will likely get the start, as he did Wednesday against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
