Wojciech Szczesny is suspended after being sent off against Galatasaray and David Ospina injured.

Martinez, who has conceded six goals in two first-team appearances for the Gunners, says he toughened up during a loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday in the second tier last season.

Martinez said: “I’ve been working on being more commanding in the box. I didn’t have any experience before and I went to the Championship, which is all about crosses and making the right decision.

“I learnt a lot because I played nearly 20 games so I’m a completely different keeper now. I was working really hard and I played really well in quite a few wins and gained a lot of experience.

“I’ve been working with Wojciech for nearly four years already. Since I came to Arsenal I’ve been working with him.”
