No Cech mate - Arsenal goalkeeper hits back at Bayer Leverkusen

No Cech mate - Arsenal goalkeeper hits back at Bayer Leverkusen

Speaking to ArsenalFanTv host Robbie Lyle, Mr DT said: "If we're going to play that style of football from the back, Petr Cech can't go in goal, it's as simple as that".

"For me, the result is very important but also the way [of the result]". He has experience, he has quality, he has the capacity'. "[But] if Bernd starts, I believe in him also", Emery told a news conference on Thursday.

During the transfer window, the Gunners snapped up custodian Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen; a player renowned, like his mentor in the German national team, Manuel Neuer, for his ability to distribute the ball comfortably.

A Chelsea back four with David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger at the heart is far from secure meaning there will be no better opportunity for Unai Emery to take the courageous call and play his big two goal threats together.

'I am very happy with his [Cech's] performance.


Chelsea will be aiming to make it two Premier League wins from two under Maurizio Sarri when they play host to rivals Arsenal this weekend.

Earlier TUKO.co.ke had reported how Arsenal manager Unai Emery explained that his wards did not play well against Premier League champions Manchester City in their first 2018/19 EPL encounter. I think we can improve in each match, in each training. I want us to continue with this work and to be competitive for 90 minutes, but with a better performance than on Sunday, both individually and collectively.

"We have one plan, we have one process".

Sead Kolasinac is certain to miss out as he's been ruled out for at least 8 weeks with a knee injury so Unai Emery will be praying Nacho Monreal is able to prove his fitness over the coming days.
