Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Lukasz Fabianski performance


Lukas Fabianski conceded his first goal since returning to the Arsenal first team in their 4-1 demolition of visiting Reading.

Arsenal's goalkeepers may all face uncertain futures, but Lukas Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny are Poles apart in terms of confidence right now.

Szczesny was dropped by Arsene Wenger after suffering from 'mental fatigue' ahead of the recent game with Bayern, and Fabianski came in and performed adeptly - his first displays of the whole season.

When Szczesny was injured earlier in the campaign so was his compatriot, so Vito Mannone kept goal, but Fabianski right now is the current goalkeeper who can lay claim to being Arsenal's number one.

He kept his place against Reading, in a 4-1 win at the Emirates, behind the now seemingly first choice of defence of Koscielny and Mertesacker.

The 68th minute goal he conceded to Hal Robson-Kanu was the first time his goal had been breached since his return to the team, and if you go back even further - the first time in four Premier League matches, dating back to the last time he started in 2011.

Fabianski's contract runs out in the summer, and whether he has a future at the club remains to be seen. Arsenal have been talked about in connection with signing players like Victor Valdes and Pepe Reina in goal, so it's fair to say the stopper is playing for a new deal, or even simply to put himself in the shop window.

So how did supporters feel he did on Saturday, despite conceding his first since returning? Here is a look at their reactions on Twitter...

Should Fabianski be kept in the summer?
