Lukasz Fabianski is delighted to be back to full fitness after missing the second half of last season with a shoulder problem.
The Polish shot-stopper suffered the blow during the warm-up against Manchester City in January but played on to keep a clean sheet against Roberto Mancini's side at Emirates Stadium.
Fabianski underwent surgery to cure the problem in February and the 26-year-old is now looking to put his injury woes behind him and compete for Arsene Wenger's number one spot.
"I damaged cartilage and that was really irritating the shoulder," Fabianski told the club's official website. "They had to clear it and, because it was a bit loose, they had to tighten it up.
"I could play (against Manchester City) but three hours after the game I started to feel it. When I did it, I felt a massive pain in my shoulder but then it was gone after one minute. I started to move it around and it seemed to be okay.
"The day after, I didn't train and we played in the FA Cup and Carling Cup so I wasn't really involved in that. Then I tried to train but I dived once and that was it. But now everything feels fine."
