Wojciech Szczesny's Official PFA Facebook page has seen substantial growth in terms of 'like's, 'comments' and fan interaction ahead of the Premier League leaders crunch clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Official PFA Facebook page along with the Wojciech Szczesny PFA player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the Official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.

Wojciech Szczesny is a Polish footballer who plays for Arsenal and the Poland national team as a goalkeeper.

His composure, agility, and command of his area led to his establishment as Arsenal's first choice when he was 20. After winning his place in the first team, Szczęsny expressed his desire to continue as Arsenal's first choice goalkeeper for the rest of his career.

In 2006, Szczęsny joined the Arsenal youth set-up, progressing to the reserve team during the 2008–2009 season. In November 2008, he lost his balance while lifting a heavy weight and both his forearms were fractured, causing him to miss five months. Szczęsny appeared on the first team bench for the first time during the Premier League match against Stoke City on 24 May 2009. At the start of the 2009–2010 season he was promoted to the senior squad and given the number 53.

He received a call up for the Champions League match against Standard Liège on 16 September 2009, staying on the bench. On 22 September 2009, Szczęsny made his first team debut in the League Cup, keeping a clean sheet against West Bromwich Albion. In December 2009, Arsène Wenger revealed that he and the rest of Arsenal's coaching staff had high hopes for Szczęsny, saying, "We have identified Wojciech as a future great, great goalkeeper." In January 2010, Wenger said: "I really believe in him that he will one day be Arsenal's number one. He has all the qualities you want from a goalkeeper."

Szczęsny had a testing time in the opening fixture of the 2013–14 Premier League season, as Arsenal lost 1–3 to Aston Villa. During the match, he conceded a penalty after tripping Gabriel Agbonlahor. Despite the disappointment, Szczęsny responded well by keeping three clean sheets in Arsenal's following four matches. He also made two crucial saves to help preserve Arsenal's 1–0 lead away to Crystal Palace in October, as well as keeping two consecutive clean sheets in vital wins over Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Wojciech Szczesny really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Arsenal and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”

“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Wojciech Szczesny.”

DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player Profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
