Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny admits that he is looking to win the Golden Glove award for this season by keeping a clean sheet against Norwich City this weekend.

The goalkeeper with the most cleans sheets in a league season is awarded the Golden Glove and Szczesny and Chelsea’s Petr Cech have both kept 16 clean sheets this season.

Cech is out with a dislocated shoulder therefore on the final day of the season the Pole has a chance to win the award for the first time in his career.

“I think I'm level with Cech, and I must admit it was in my head for the last 10 or 15 minutes of the [West Brom] game and I didn't want to concede”, then 24-year-old told the club’s official site.


The Pole believes that the Gunners have shown defensive resilience at home this season which can be a platform on which they can build in their next campaign.

“We've had a fantastic defensive record at home and we kept it going here. That's something that we want to keep next season.

“If I win the Golden Glove I would love it but it doesn't matter right now.”

Despite keeping 16 clean sheets, the Arsenal defence have conceded 41 goals, equal to seventh placed Manchester United and 15 more than third placed Chelsea.
