Szczesny allowed two goals in Saturday's draw against Hull City.

Szczesny mustered two saves during the course of the match, but generally had little to do Saturday. Unfortunately, he was beaten on a controversial first-half goal, before a clear header passed him seconds after the halftime restart. While the Polish keeper is entering a favorable stretch of games, Arsenal's injury depleted defense makes Szczesny hard to rely on for clean sheets at the moment.

Szczesny produced two saves in Sunday's 2-0 loss at Chelsea.

Szczesny was first beaten on a penalty-kick and then skillfully chipped over for the second goal he conceded Sunday. Through Arsenal's opening seven matches, the Polish keeper boasts 17 saves and one clean sheet, although his upcoming schedule could offer a resurgence in the latter category.

Szczesny was dismissed in the 60th minute of the 4-1 win at home to Galatasaray.

Szczesny conceded a penalty after bringing down Burak Yilmaz in the area and was sent off for the offence to be replaced by David Ospina. Szczesny's dismissal didn't have any effect on the result and he will be suspended for the next Champions League game away to Anderlecht.

Szczesny produced four saves in Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Saturday.

Szczesny, who recorded his first clean sheet of the season last week, was only beaten by a well-placed finish early in the second half of Saturday's North London derby. Through six matches, the Polish keeper boasts just 15 saves, but he figures to be more involved next weekend at Chelsea, who currently lead the league with 19 goals.

Szczesny registered a season-high six saves in his most recent match, a 2-2 draw against Manchester City on Saturday.

Szczesny was often called into action during Saturday's match, particularly in the second-half. Although he allowed two goals, the Polish goalkeeper also produced some clutch saves in the game's waning moments to preserve a draw. Nonetheless, Szczesny will hope to secure his first clean sheet of the Premier League season Saturday at Aston Villa.

Szczesny failed to produce a save in Arsenal's 2-2 draw at Everton on Saturday.

Szczesny was beaten early on by a close range header, before conceding a second goal in a one-on-one situation. While replay showed the latter score should have been disallowed for offside, Szczesny still couldn't get a hand to either attempt put on target Saturday. The Polish keeper will seek his first clean sheet of the season at Leicester City next Sunday.

Szczesny made one save during Arsenal's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace to open the season Saturday.

Szczesny only conceded a close range headed goal from a corner-kick, which he had little chance of saving. Besides that, the Polish keeper was required to do much. He'll take the show on the road for a stiff test against Everton next weekend.
