Fabianski: Good form is not far away
Lukasz Fabianski heads back to Arsenal this weekend believing Swansea City are not far away from an upturn in fortunes.
Former Gunners keeper Fabianski will seek to shut out his old club as the Swans look to bounce back from home defeats against Leicester City and Manchester United.
Paul Clement’s men have endured a difficult start to the season, although their away form so far has been impressive.
Another reason to be cheerful as they take on Arsenal is the Swans’ remarkable record at the Emirates.
In six Premier League visits to Arsenal’s home, the Swans have come back to Wales with a total of 10 points to show for their efforts.
And despite recent disappointments at the Liberty, Fabianski feels they can do something special once more on Saturday.
“It has been a tricky start for us, but hopefully we’ll start turning things around very soon,” the Swans keeper said.
“I don’t think there’s too much lacking – we are not that far away from getting to where we want to be.
“We have done well at Arsenal in the past – the club have managed some good results at the Emirates and it’s always been a tricky game for Arsenal.
“We’ve beaten them in the past so going into this game, we can take confidence from that.”
Fabianski spent seven years at Arsenal after leaving his native Poland to join them back in 2007.
He was the hero of their FA Cup final victory over Hull in 2014, but left the club that summer to join the Swans.
“Going back to the Emirates in the first season after I joined Swansea was very special because I had a lot of fresh memories,” Fabianski said.
“But now I just try to approach each game without putting too many emotions into it.
“For me, it’s just about focusing on the next game and trying to get a result.”
