Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is looking forward to competing in the FA Cup again.

The Gunners stopper believes that his side have what it takes to lift the trophy in May.

“It’s massive. Everyone realises how big a competition it is,” he said. “It’s just as big as the Premier League for us. We want to take our chances of getting as far as we can.

“There’s always a special atmosphere when you play in the FA Cup. We know how much it means and we want to win the trophy.”
