Wojciech Szczesny says that Steve Bould deserves credit for Arsenal's strong recent defensive performances.

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has played down his late save against Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League on Saturday.

Having led since the first minute, the Pole was forced into making a wonderful stop late on to deny Loic Remy an equaliser and secure the Gunners a vital 1-0 win at Loftus Road to keep them in the top four.

However, the 23-year-old insists that he does not deserve all of the credit for the North Londoners' recent impressive defensive displays.

"I don't think it was a great save," said Szczesny. "I am not getting too excited, it's about the team's defending.

"It's not just the two centre-backs, it's not just the goalkeeper, it's the whole team. A lot of credit has to go to [Arsenal assistant manager] Steve Bould for his work."

Arsenal host Wigan Athletic on Tuesday next week.
