Unai Emery has backed Petr Cech as Arsenal's starting goalkeeper heading into the Gunners' Week 2 match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Despite some questionable decisions and actions with the ball at his feet against Manchester City, Petr Cech has his manager's faith heading into the weekend against his former club Chelsea. The cynic in me says that Emery is letting Cech take the two tough bullets early in the schedule rather than throwing his long-term solution at goalkeeper into nearly impossible circumstances. It could be that Cech is simply better than Leno but my suspicion is that the German will start playing a larger part come September and be the full-time starter not long after that. It is a respectful way to handle the decline of a legend as well as a wise handling of a new arrival you hope is going to be in place for years to come. Aug 16 - 12:57 PM
