.
Fabianski let out a celebratory roar.

“Yes, I was happy,” said Fabianski said after the match.

Fabianski said he is ready to help shut out Chelsea in Sunday’s Premier League showdown at Stamford Bridge after receiving criticism from fans this season following a series of high-profile errors.

“I am ready. I was always ready. I was never bothered by all the things that happened. I always tried to focus on my work, on my job.”

“We are all looking forward to the Chelsea match. Hopefully it will be exciting game.”

“Who knows what might have happened had Partizan got back to 3-2. They could have thrown all their players up. But luckily I saved the penalty and the game was easy to finish.”

‘Overall I’m pleased with my performance. Not just some of the saves I made but my reading of the game, coming for the crosses and the way I played with my feet. Every aspect is important to me and in general I am pleased.”

Fabianski pleased Arsene Wenger as well by his top tier play, living up to what his manager expected all along.

Manager Arsene Wenger remarked, “We have seen the player tonight who we see in training. He had a faultless game. I am confident he will come out as a great keeper, I have always said that.”

Florent Malouda will rejoin his Chelsea team-mates against Arsenal.

“It will not be easy because Arsenal is a big opponent, even better than last year. For us it is important to try and start the game like we did against Marseille. We must impose a high energy rate and try to push them into making mistakes,” he commented.

Arsenal v Sunderland – Premier League Preview

Arsene Wenger enjoyed watching Arsenal beat SC Braga 6-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday. He has great expectations for his side’s trip to Sunderland today on the back of three straight Premier League successes.

Wenger hopes Arsenal, who have not won a major trophy since 2005, would be able to update that record in this weekend’s match.

“Everywhere we go we try to win,” he said. “It will be a big game, but we’ll be focused. It’s important for our season as well that we’re capable of going from Champions League to championship and vice versa.”

“From Wednesday night to Saturday it’s short but we can rotate a little bit,” he said.

Wenger’s options have been limited to injuries to Robin van Persie, Thomas Vermaelen, Abou Diaby and Theo Walcott but he will probably recall Tomas Rosicky, Emmanuel Eboue, Denilson who were all on the bench against Braga And he has with Mexico forward or Carlos Vela who scored twice in the match.

Sunderland have a formidable home record – they have lost just once, to Manchester United, in the past nine months, and manager Steve Bruce has called on an expected 40,000-plus crowd to create another intimidating atmosphere.

“The fans can make all the difference for us – they certainly did against Manchester City.”

“They’ve made the Stadium of Light one of the most intimidating places to come for away games and we need to make full use of that advantage. It’d be great to see a packed stadium rocking and I’d urge our fans to get down. We’ll be trying our level best to put on a show for them.”

“Of course it won’t be easy but the players are up for the challenge. We know Arsenal are an excellent side but I’m focused on what we do rather than the opposition. When the crowd get going the noise is phenomenal and we need them there in numbers replicating that again this weekend.”

Bruce is expected to debut £13mil record signing Asamoah Gyan. Gyan scored at Wigan last week.

Possible Arsenal Starting XI: Almunia; Sagna, Koscielny, Squillaci, Clichy; Fabregas, Song, Wilshere; Nasri, Chamakh, Arshavin – Manager Arsene Wenger.

Possible Sunderland Starting XI: Mignolet; Onuoha, Bramble, Ferdinand, Richardson; Welbeck, Malbranque, Henderson, Riveros, Gyan – Manager Steve Bruce.
