The Arsenal goalkeeper has been questioned on regular occasions in the past, with sporadic appearances denying him the opportunity to establish any consistency.

He is currently enjoying an extended run in the Gunners side, with Manuel Alumina injured, but has found himself thrust under the spotlight once more.

A poor decision to stray from his line cost Arsenal dear against Newcastle last weekend, as Andy Carroll nodded home the only goal of the game.

Fabianski insists he did not dwell on that error, though, with the games coming thick and fast, and he was in sparkling form as Wolves were beaten 2-0 at Molineux on Wednesday.

Good shape

He said: "To be honest, I have played for some time and have not been looking bad in goal.

"I was not happy with what happened against Newcastle but overall I have still felt in good shape.

"I was not thinking about 'bouncing back from Newcastle' and was only focused on having a good game here and helping the team.

"I think I'm getting experience which is really important for a keeper and that experience is helping me to prepare for another game.

"I don't know what will happen when Manuel (Almunia) is fit but I will keep doing my best and helping the team and we will see what happens."


Fabianski was not the only one to provide a positive response to the weekend setback, with Arsenal back to their best in the Midlands.

They took just 39 seconds to break the deadlock, through two-goal hero Marouane Chamakh, and displayed commendable courage away from home to wrap up the points.

Fabianski said: "The win says a lot about our spirit and focus on the game.

"We knew we had to win and come back stronger. It was important to get the three points.

"It was very important we bounced back very well. We started strongly and it was a difficult game.

"They really pushed us and put us under a lot of pressure but we defended well and scored two fantastic goals and we are very happy."
