Fabianski - I must thank Philippe for protecting my clean-sheet

Lukasz Fabianski made his debut in last night’s Carling Cup win over Newcastle at Emirates Stadium as Arsenal ran out 2-0 winners.

But following the final whistle, the Polish shot-stopper was keen to thank defensive colleague Philippe Senderos for his goal-line clearance from Obafemi Martins’ shot, when the Nigerian striker had rounded Fabianski moments after the Gunners took the lead.

“I want to say thank you also to Philippe because he reacted very well and helped me,” he told Arsenal TV Online.

“I think if Newcastle scored this goal it would be very hard because after we scored the first goal they could have scored after a few minutes, few seconds even, but they didn’t so I want to say thank you to Philippe because it was a great reaction, a great tackle.”

Fabianski, 22, a summer signing from Legia Warsaw, then went on to state the young Gunners’ desire to win the competition after falling at the last hurdle last year, and revealed the brief but significant words of advice manager Arsene Wenger had offered him before the match.

“When you are a professional then you try to win every game,” he said. “so we think like this and I hope that we’re going to try to win this cup. It will be a great success I think.

“The boss said to me before the game to be very, very focused.

And what are his ambitions at the club?

“I want to reach a lot of success with Arsenal. For me it was a big pleasure that we won today’s game I hope that I’ll play in the next Carling Cup game. We’ll see what happens.

Word on the street is that Fabianski has got everything it takes to be a top 'keeper in a year or two. Last night's performance was very sharp - a good save from Martins early on, claimed everything else that came his way and only let down by a late rush-out - but Almunia and Lehmann have got away with those in the past, so I'd not hold it against him. Promising.
