Gunners keeper on standby for Reds clash with Szczesny doubtful

Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone says it will be a dream to be picked for the Gunners' clash at Liverpool this weekend. Mannone is again on standby ahead of Sunday's Anfield clash, with regular shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny struggling to recover from a rib problem. Poland international Szczesny missed last weekend's trip to Premier League rivals Stoke, but Mannone, 24, kept a clean sheet as Arsenal earned a 0-0 draw.

Fun

"Liverpool will be more technical and play the ball on the floor more than Stoke," said the Italian. "It is a dream of any kid to play at Anfield. I went a few years ago to watch a game, just to see the stadium. "It will be fun if I have the chance, because I would love to play in that ground, feel the atmosphere and hopefully get a win."
