The Polish keeper Lukasz Fabianski was plunged back into the Arsenal side in the impossible-looking away game at Bayern Munich but managed to come back with a clean sheet and it looked like he had cemented his big chance to replace thev out-of-form Wojciech Szczesny for the rest of the season.
But as usual he got an injury and Wenger had to choice but to reinstate Szczesny in the first team, and he has also seemed to come into some good form when called upon.
The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey still believes that Arsene Wenger's team is not only good enough to beat Bayern Munich, but can still win the trophy.

The big West Ham defender James Collins says that his side is feeling very confident going into this weekend's game against Arsenal. The Hammers are currently two points ahead of Arsenal in 7th place and so far have won two and drawn one of their homes games this season and he believes they will carry on that record against Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger's new assistant Steve Bould took charge of his first Arsenal game last night with Wenger banished to the stands, and after an excellent first half the Gunners had to dig deeply in defence to keep Montpellier from equalising as they pressed strongly while Arsenal tired.
Overall Bould was more than happy with the performance.
There are a lot of Arsenal fans that will have given up on Abou Diaby ever returning to his
brilliant form from his younger days, but we could take heart from the fact that a certain Robin
Van Persie was also injured for seven years in a row before he finally turned into a top-class
Mertesacker Believes by AH Per Mertesacker today told Arsenal.com about his confidence in the side.

Merry Monday Arsenal fans! How've you been? Well, the truth is, it doesn't matter how you've been
because I'm pretty certain that the Gunners next two games are going to decide how you're going to
be for a long, long time. Today we enter one of the most important weeks of the season so far.
The Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has seen his side beaten just once since losing to Arsenal
(thanks to a last minute Yossi Benayoun goal) back in December, and is hoping to carry on that good
form in today's FA Cup match at the Emirates. Last week Villa won away at Wolves with two goals

Cesc Fabregas may be the captain of Arsenal in name, but this season he has been a shadow of his
former self and has hardly inspired his team-mates either in his play or his leadership. But the
fall of Cesc has been matched by the meteoric rise of Samir Nasri, who has been playing out of
