Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski says it will be "funny" facing his former side Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Seventh-placed Swansea face fifth-placed Gunners with Fabianski lining up against Arsene Wenger's team for the first time since moving to the Liberty Stadium.

But the Pole says he will not feel any sympathy for his former team.

"It's all about the game, it's all about three points," he said.

"When I get to the tunnel and see some of my former team-mates - my friends really - standing on the opposite side then it will be a funny experience for me."

The 21-times capped Poland international moved to Swansea in the summer of 2014 in order to be number one goalkeeper.

He had been understudy to his Poland compatriot Wojciech Szczęsny at the Emirates, with his first team starts in the 2013-14 season largely restricted to the FA Cup and League Cup.

His arrival in Swansea led to the departure to Tottenham of Netherlands international Michel Vorm, who had been Swansea's first choice in the Premier League.

However, Fabianski - who has made 10 appearances for the Swans - believes he is under no extra pressure as a result of his transfer.

"I don't think there is anything to prove for Swansea supporters because so far I think I have basically trying to do my best in every single game," he said.

"And with Arsenal I don't think I have to prove anything to them.

"It was my decision to leave the club and I think the way I finished was a good way and we all have massive respect toward each other and there is nothing else to prove really.

"I'm really happy with the way things have worked out with me and for the clubs."

The 29-year old former Legia Warsaw player has tried to help the Swans' coaches with inside knowledge on the Gunners.

"The coaching staff have asked me a few things against Arsenal," he added.

"I was able to tell them my perspective on them from the period I was there hopefully they will be able to use it."
