Why Arsenal shouldn't give up on Petr Cech yet

Why Arsenal shouldn't give up on Petr Cech yet

Emery had added to his goalkeeping pool in the summer with the capture of highly rated Bayer Leverkusen shot-stopper Bernd Leno for £19.2 million ($25m), with Leverkusen themselves among those who ridiculed Cech for his apparent inability to play out from the back.

Veteran Cech, 36, struggled with Emery's demands to play out from the back against City and nearly scored a comical own goal by passing the ball inches past his own post. Without his timely and important saves-particularly his double save against Riyad Mahrez's free kick in the first half and his 1v1 save against Sergio Agüero in the second half-the game would have been much further out of reach. Petr Cech can continue to start the match, I believe in him.

Emery has also confirmed that Petr Cech will keep his place between the sticks this weekend so Bernd Leno will have to wait a little longer to make his competitive debut for the north Londoners. Also, with Bernd Leno [it's the same].

Eden Hazard is gearing up for his first start of the Premier League season and the forward looks in fine fettle ahead of Chelsea's clash with Arsenal.




Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Emery said he learned a lot about his players from the defeat to City.

"Against Manchester City, the team kept their ideas, kept their spirit in the game for the full 90 minutes, even when we were losing, and didn't let (their heads) go down".

"We want a good preparation before and a good response on the pitch to that preparation".

Right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner replaced Maitland-Niles at the weekend and Emery has said the Switzerland worldwide is an option to fill-in against Chelsea on Saturday. Different qualities but for us, like we want to play, the two goalkeepers can play. After this injury, I tried with Lichtsteiner, who is a player with experience.
