Lukasz Fabianski has said that he hopes that his performance against Wigan Athletic on Saturday will help him retain his place in the Arsenal starting lineup.
"I don't know: it's up to the boss, but after my performance I hope that I can," ESPN quotes the 28-year-old Pole as saying. "I'm very happy that we managed to go through to the final, it's a really massive thing for us, especially after such a difficult game.
"We showed character and we're all pleased with the final result. I wasn't thinking I was just reacting. To be honest with you, I did some homework but none of them were on my list, the guys who stepped up to take penalties.
"So I was just guessing, it was more intuition rather than my homework that I'd done. I was surprised that Gomez didn't step up as the first one. Then I saw Caldwell and Collison taking the pens, I was just guessing. I did look at Youtube and things like that, but I didn't see anything of Collison or Caldwell on there."
The semi-final tie between Arsenal and Wigan finished 1-1 after extra time.
