PICTURE: Szczesny's wry smirk as Arsenal concede late own goal

Arsenal goalkeeper looked speechless as Arsenal conceded a late own goal.

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was all smiles as Arsenal beat Spurs a fortnight ago, taking a 'selfie' photo at White Hart Lane while celebrating the 1-0 win.

Since then the Pole has had little to celebrate, performing poorly as the Gunners were hit for six against Chelsea on Saturday and then involved in another calamitous mix-up versus Fulham.

He not so cleverly combined with Per Mertesacker and Mathieu Flamini to concede an injury time own goal in a farcical mix-up reminiscent of Obafemi Martins' 2011 Carling Cup Final winner.

With FA Cup ties against Wigan and potentially a final coming up, Arsenal fans will hope the club are getting their errors out of their system early.

Even so, there are growing calls for Szczesny to be dropped in the media and from fans, with deputy Lukasz Fabianski impressing in Munich when the number one was suspended, saving a Thomas Muller penalty.

It's easy to say now on the back of dropped points in two successive games, but Szczesny's camera antics are looking more and more ill-judged.

In recent seasons finishing above Spurs has become cause for celebration among, worryingly, the players, when fans have previously become used to accepting it as standard and competing for trophies.

With Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes on the market this summer, the option of bringing in a maturer, proven winner has to be worth consideration among the Arsenal hierarchy.
