Fab admits he’s feeling pressure

Łukasz Fabiański makes a save from Wilfried Zaha

Lukasz Fabianski could not be happier with life and the pressure he is under with the rest of the lads.

After the last couple of seasons he is used to pressure but this is a different world to the one he has been forced to live with when – like the rest of the squad – he had been forced to look over his shoulder.

Currently in fifth place and  his former club Arsenal arriving at the weekend means happy days are finally here again for the Polish international who his week was called up by his country for the World Cup qualifiers.

Having recovered from injury Fab has been in great form again and clearly enjoying life in a big way as the Irons continue with their bid for Europe.

“What I like about this present time is that we are still under pressure, but it is a completely different pressure to the one we felt last season, when we were in a difficult position and basically fighting against relegation,” the goalkeeper told the Football Daily Podcast.

“At the moment, I think we feel pressure, but on the other hand that pressure is connected to trying to achieve something cool or something nice, so it’s a completely different feeling.

“Being able to come in every single day and everyone is basically very happy and smiling and at the same time so positive during the training sessions and I think what has improved a lot, when you look at the atmosphere of our training sessions, is that everyone is so up for it.

“I think that the situation has created a change of the culture when it comes to keeping the standards high in our training sessions, demanding a lot of yourself and your teammates every single day, because we have proved so far this season that we can basically get better.

“That’s what has happened and it’s very enjoyable to have this kind of environment.

After the defeat at Manchester United it’s critical we don’t suffer back to back defeats as that’s only happened over the first two games of the season.

Europe becknos and Fab wants to be a part of it!
