Fabianski: Having recovered from injury, he is intent on reclaiming his position
Lukasz Fabianski has not given up hope of reclaiming the Arsenal goalkeeping jersey from Polish compatriot Wojciech Szczesny.
Fabianski sustained a shoulder injury in January which allowed his understudy to establish himself as Arsene Wenger's first-choice keeper.
Szczesny began the campaign in pole position having been installed during pre-season but Fabianski is determined to make his displacement just a temporary issue.
"I am fighting hard, really hard," he told Arsenal Player.
"Since we came back from Germany I can say I have been fully fit. Now I am ready to play.
"It has been a difficult time for me because I was No.1 last year and I lost it due to my injury. Now I am fit again but Wojciech is doing well.
"Of course I am not happy with my position because I want to be No.1 but I have to accept it and fight for it. I am fighting really hard to get where I was before."
