The YouTube generation: Fabainski admits doing his homework on Wigan penalty takers

Arsenal's FA Cup hero Lukasz Fabainski has admitted turning to YouTube in order to research Wigan's possible penalty takers.

The 28-year-old was however left to his instincts to guess where Gary Caldwell and Jack Collision were likely to place the ball as the Gunner's keeper couldn't find any clips of the pair taking spot kicks.

The Poland international, who saved two of the four Latics penalties, told Arsenal Player:
"I did look at YouTube and things like that, but I didn’t see anything of Collison or Caldwell on there. 
"To be honest with you I did some homework but none of them [the Wigan penalty takers] were on my list!. 
"The guys who stepped up to take penalties [were different] so I was just guessing. It was more intuition rather than my homework that I’d done. 
"I was surprised that [Jordi] Gomez didn’t step up as the first one. Then I saw Caldwell and Collison taking the penalties, so I was just guessing."
Fabianski is set to play his last game in an Arsenal shirt before a summer move away from north London in next month's Wembley final.
