Will Petr Cech start for Arsenal against Chelsea? 0

Posted on August 14, 2018 by David Nugent

One of the Gunners problem areas in recent seasons has been in goal. Petr Cech had previously been one of the best goalkeepers in the world. However, since joining Arsenal Cech has regressed as he has grown older.

Some of the world’s best goalkeepers of bygone days have played well into their thirties or even forties in some cases. However, at 36 years old, the former Chelsea stopper seems to be making more mistakes as the seasons go on.

Cech now has a potential replacement at the club

When Arsenal signed German international goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, many expected the new arrival to be installed as the Gunners first choice instantly.

As seen on Twitter, Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech took a shot at the Bayer Leverkusen English Twitter account for a joke they made in regards to Bernd Leno. The German club seemed to indicate that they want to see Leno, who is their former goalkeeper, performing for the Gunners after his multi-million pound move to the Emirates. Alas, Cech took exception to this, citing that it showcased a lack of professionalism on Leverkusen’s behalf.

There were plenty of questions that fans wanted the answers to at the weekend, as Arsenal failed to overcome the challenge of champions Manchester City. It was an interesting game to watch in more ways than one as Unai Emery had his first taste of Premier League football, but as we all know, this perhaps wasn’t the best representation of what life in the top flight will be like for the Spaniard.

Obviously, Arsenal suffering a 2-0 defeat home on the opening day of the Premier League campaign is the ideal start to a campaign for the Gunners. However, the defeat must be put into perspective.

Arsenal were playing against arguably one of the best football teams that has ever graced the Premier League in Pep Guardiola’s City. It is no disgrace to suffer defeat, but it shows there is plenty of work for Emery to do to revive the Gunners.

Early days for Emery

The transition from 22 years of veteran boss Arsene Wenger to Emery was never going to be a simple one. The players have still only worked with the Spanish boss for a few months.

Arsenal fought valiantly at the weekend in more ways than one but in the end, they weren’t quite able to overcome the far superior Manchester City as they eased to victory in the first game of their Premier League title defence. The Gunners were never really able to create anything of substance against an efficient City side, and while they didn’t quite get blown out of the water, they never really felt like they were ‘in’ the game either.

Arsenal’s first Premier League game of the new season is officially in the books, and unfortunately, they weren’t able to overcome the rampant reigning champions Manchester City who ran away with a 2-0 victory. Whilst the Gunners had a few nice moments they never really threatened on the level that you’d expect in the opening game, but given that they were going up against one of the best EPL teams of all-time, that’s somewhat understandable.

Arsenal face a tough challenge today, as the Gunners host reigning Premier League champions Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners may have experienced a few difficult campaigns in the English top-flight. However, one facet of the north London side that has stayed stable is their form at home in the Premier League.

The Emirates Stadium a tough ground for opposition teams

The Gunners finished last season by winning seven of their eight games at the Emirates Stadium. The exception to that run was a 3-0 defeat by Sunday’s opponents Manchester City, who produced a sublime display in north London.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal begins a new era, as new boss Unai Emery takes charge of his first competitive game as Gunners boss. The Spaniard could not have asked for a tougher challenge for his first game, as Manchester City visit the Emirates Stadium.

There is a new positive atmosphere at the north London club. The signings of Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have improved the Gunners squad.

The Gunners finished sixth-place last season in the Premier League, having endured an inconsistent league campaign. Their final six games of the last season’s campaign summed-up their season, as they won three and lost three of their final six games.

The Premier League transfer window is now shut and Arsenal fans have cause for quiet content with the Gunners summer business. Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Stephan Lichtsteiner Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have all joined the Gunners during the transfer window.

However, the summer arrival of new boss Unai Emery cold a far big reaching impact than any of the clubs summer signings.

Arsenal spending small this summer

Arsenal has decided to take a cautious approach in the transfer market this summer. Some might argue that the Gunners have taken a cautious approach in the transfer market anyway in recent years.

The time for talk is almost over, as clubs up and down the country prepare themselves for the new season. Some are considered to be title contenders and others will be fearing relegation, but whatever the case may be, the unpredictability of English football is likely going to keep us all guessing until the very last day of the season. One club we’ve been keeping a particularly close eye on, shockingly enough, is Arsenal.
