Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has apologised for his mistake that cost the Gunners a place in this year's FA Cup final at Wembley. The Polish glove-man was drafted in following an injury to Manuel Almunia during the Champions League quarter-final first leg tie against Villarreal. However, despite keeping a clean sheet in the remainder of that game and throughout the whole of the second leg, the stopper was at fault for both of Chelsea's goals as the Blues came from behind to triumph 2-1 in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final. The keeper's confidence suffered further on Tuesday night, conceding four times at Anfield in a thrilling 4-4 draw with Liverpool, despite pulling off several excellent saves. But Fabianski revealed he is still attempting to shake off the horrors of the weekend at Wembley. "After the weekend, I was really feeling down," he said. “I know that it was mostly because of me that we did not qualify for the FA Cup final. “When you are honest and look with honest eyes on that, you can say it. Every day I had been waking up with the game still in my mind, so it was not easy. “When the season is finished, maybe I will clear it out from my mind. It was a big, big chance to win something this season in the FA Cup. “I did not help my team like I should have, and I am sorry for that.” NEWS: Fabianski backed to bounce back ARSENAL FANS!
