Szczesny is set for another scan on his injured hand

Arsenal could see goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny back in action for the climax of their Barclays Premier League title bid. Wojciech SzczesnySzczesny is set for another scan on his injured hand at the start of April, which if all goes well could see the young Pole in contention for what is set to be a crunch showdown with Manchester United at Emirates Stadium on 1st May. The 20-year-old has had his finger placed in a protective splint since suffering the freak injury when saving a free-kick against Barcelona in their Champions League tie at the Nou Camp earlier this month. “There is not a lot of joint damage, the tendon is ruptured, so basically I have to keep my finger in a splint for four weeks and let the tendon heal,” Szczesny told Arsenal TV Online. “From then it will be a couple of weeks before I can be back in the squad. It is very hard, especially at a time when it was going well for me, but there is nothing you can do when it happens – you have to move on, work hard on your fitness and make sure you come back stronger than ever.”
