    Emiliano Martinez ‘has the ability’ to succeed at Arsenal, says Petr Cech

    Petr Cech has tipped third-choice Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez to be a success at the north London club.

    Martinez, 24, began his career at Argentina’s Independiente before joining the youth academy at Arsenal in 2010 and has enjoyed a stint of loan spells in the Football League as he vies for his chance under Arsene Wenger having only made four Premier League appearances for the Gunners.

    Despite being down the pecking order behind Cech and David Ospina, Arsenal’s No.1 stopper has tipped […]

  • Olivier Giroud ‘very important’ to Arsenal despite bench role – Petr Cech

    Olivier Giroud ‘very important’ to Arsenal despite bench role – Petr Cech

    Petr Cech has hailed Olivier Giroud’s underrated contribution to Arsenal after the French forward’s late equaliser at Manchester United.

    With Alexis Sanchez chosen to lead the line for Arsene Wenger’s side, Giroud, 30, has been consigned to the bench this season, making all six Premier League appearances so far as a substitute.

    The France international has still managed to have a significant impact, however. He scored twice to help Arsenal overcome a stubborn Sunderland side in late October before coming off the […]

    Cech: Man United must win to keep title chances alive

    Petr Cech has said Arsenal’s trip to Manchester United on Saturday will be a “really significant” game for both teams in terms of their chances of success this season.

    Arsenal are fourth, but could temporarily go top with a win at Old Trafford, while United are six points behind the Gunners and, according to Cech, “need the three points” if they are to keep any hope of a title challenge.

    “It is another six-point game,” Cech told Arsenal Player. “We drew the […]

    Petr Cech intent on leaving Manchester United behind in title race this weekend

    Petr Cech has signalled Arsenal‘s intent ahead of their much-anticipated clash with Manchester United in the Premier League this weekend.

    The Gunners head to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon with a six-point advantage over Jose Mourinho’s men and are unbeaten since a defeat at home to Liverpool on the opening day of the season.

    A number of Arsenal players are speaking with real confidence in the lead-up to the match with United and Cech has stressed that the north London outfit are […]

    Manchester United are still title contenders – Petr Cech

    Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has told talkSPORT that Manchester United should not be counted out of the Premier League title race.

    Cech said United manager Jose Mourinho, under whom he won three Premier League titles at Chelsea, would turn the Old Trafford club into contenders.

    United, who face Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday, won their first three Premier League games under Mourinho but have since fallen to seventh in the table, six points behind the leaders.

    But Cech said: “I still count […]

  • Arsenal’s Cech is the best in the Premier League – Schwarzer

    Arsenal’s Cech is the best in the Premier League – Schwarzer

    Former goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer says that Arsenal’s Petr Cech is the best in the Premier League.

    Cech, 34, joined the Gunners from Chelsea for £11 million in 2015 and impressed in the 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough on Saturday, making a number of crucial saves to ensure the home side came away with a point.

    And his former Chelsea teammate Schwarzer insists that such a performance was no surprise.

    “For me, Petr Cech is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League and probably has […]

  • Cech saved Arsenal against Middlesbrough – Wenger

    Cech saved Arsenal against Middlesbrough – Wenger

    Arsene Wenger says Arsenal have Petr Cech to thank for saving them from defeat against Middlesbrough after a 0-0 draw at the Emirates.

    Boro are without a win since beating basement boys Sunderland in August but asked plenty of questions of Arsenal, who were indebted to three fine saves from Cech.

    Wenger turned 67 on Saturday but was left to bemoan a performance lacking the attacking verve of Wednesday’s 6-0 Champions League romp against Ludogorets.

    “We tried. You don’t win on command though,” […]

  • ‘Wenger is waiting for this Arsenal player to make a mistake’

    ‘Wenger is waiting for this Arsenal player to make a mistake’

    Arsene Wenger has been accused of waiting for David Ospina to make a mistake in Arsenal’s Champions League games.

    The Colombia international started in the Champions League for the third time this season for Wednesday’s clash against Ludogorets.

    But Michael Owen insists Petr Cech should still be considered the first-choice option for all of Arsenal’s fixtures – including their games in Europe.

    ‘I’d still be worried as an Arsenal fan,’ Owen told BT Sport.

    ‘I know he’s done fine in the games so far, […]

  • Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger share one thing in common, reveals Petr Cech

    Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger share one thing in common, reveals Petr Cech

    Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech believes Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger share one similarity – they both despise losing.

    The Czech Republic stopper is one of the few players to have played under both managers following his move to the Emirates in 2015.

    The 34-year-old spent 11 trophy-laden years at Stamford Bridge before making the controversial switch but he’s still held in high regard from the Chelsea support.

    Wenger and Mourinho have shared a fierce rivalry since the Portuguese boss moved to England in […]

  • Arsenal star enters Guinness Book of Records for TWO different feats

    Arsenal star enters Guinness Book of Records for TWO different feats

    Arsenal star Petr Cech has been included in the Guinness Book of Records this year, for two landmarks he reached last season.

    The 34-year-old became the ‘keeper with the most clean sheets ever in the Premier League, with 181, and also became the only player to ever win the golden glove with two separate clubs, the Gunners and Chelsea.

    Cech has quickly become a fan favourite at the Emirates, since his move from from Stamford Bridge.

    Ousted by Thibaut Courtois at the Blues, […]

  • Loosing Cech Chelsea’s biggest mistake

    Loosing Cech Chelsea’s biggest mistake

    The Belgium’s comments about a return to Spain were ill-planned and drove home the point the Blues’ selling of their legendary goalkeeper to Arsenal was a mistake.

    But selling the club’s legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech for the younger Thibaut Courtois is appearing by far to have been the worst.

    Courtois returned from a successful three-year loan spell with Atletico Madrid to take Cech’s No.1 shirt in 2014 – resulting in Cech being sold to Arsenal – but that decision is beginning to […]
