Petr Cech redeemed himself after a miserable Week 1 performance against West Ham with a string of exceptional first half saves to keep Arsenal level on the way to a nil-nil draw at the Emirates.
Arsenal will feel hard done by and lucky at the same time when looking back on this result. A perfectly good Aaron Ramsey goal was disallowed for an offside that wasn't early in the first half. At the same time, the Gunners were terrible at the back allowing chance after chance to the Reds and relying on the post (twice) and Petr Cech (more than twice) to preserve the clean sheet. Perhaps this is what John Terry was talking about when he said that Cech would mean more points for Arsenal over the course of the season. Aug 24 - 5:05 PM

Petr Cech wasn't the only poor performer but he was certainly the most visible as Arsenal lost 2-0 to West Ham at the Emirates in their season opener.

A ton of momentum for the Gunners went down the drain in 90 minutes at the Emirates on Sunday. New signing Petr Cech looked decidedly mortal flailing for a Dimitri Payet free kick only to watch Kouyate knife in front of him to head it home for a 1-0 win. He looked downright poor when Mauro Zarate collected a botched clearance and shot from 20+ yards in the 57th minute. Zarate's shot was neither particularly powerful nor well-placed and yet it beat Cech comfortably. Arsenal defenders should have done better on both West Ham scoring plays but the reason to buy Cech was to have a safety blanket to make the good saves and even the occasional spectacular one. He failed to make two relatively routine ones and Arsenal have already created an uphill battle for themselves this season as a result.

Petr Cech was fantastic in Arsenal's win over Everton in the Barclays Asia Trophy Final.

Arsenal started with a really strong squad in what could very well resemble their week one lineup. They outplayed Everton the whole way and were in full control by the 62nd minute, when they were 3-0 up with goals from Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, and Mesut Ozil. They enjoyed 53% possession and had 18 shots to Everton's six. The Toffees were able to return a goal in the 75th minute via Ross Barkley, but they never threatened Arsenal. This Gunner team looks very dangerous when healthy and Chelsea will have their hands full in their title defense.

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea complete with the obligatory Tweeted photo of the player in an Arsenal shirt.

It isn't often that Arsene Wenger gets one over on Jose Mourinho but it appears that he has today as the North London club announce the signing of one of Mourinho's stalwarts in Petr Cech. While Cech wouldn't have played much at Stamford Bridge, he should be an improvement over David Ospina/Wojceich Szczesny and provide a significant talent boost to Arsenal over where they left off last season. Given that Arsenal were excellent over the second half of last season, things are certainly going their way heading into the start of the 2015-16 season.

Petr Cech is reportedly at Arsenal today having his medical exams ahead of finalizing a permanent move across London early next week.

All other details of the deal between Arsenal, Chelsea and the player are reportedly settled so the medical should be the only hurdle remaining to the transfer going final. Various pundits have been trying to poke holes in this deal from the Arsenal side but it's hard to find a flaw unless you're really going out of their way. He isn't Thibault Courtois or David De Gea or Manuel Neuer but none of those three players is available and Cech should be a significant upgrade over David Ospina and Wojceich Szczesny.

Romanian wonderkid Vlad Dragomir could be unveiled as Arsene Wenger’s first signing of the summer despite the club reportedly agreeing an $18 million deal for Petr Cech from Chelsea yesterday.

The 16 year-old is believed to be one of Europe’s hottest prospects attracting the attention of a number of top clubs including Inter Milan and Monaco but given Wenger’s reputation for nurturing and developing young talent the central midfielder opted for a move to London. Potentially Dragomir is a major coup for Arsenal (one for the future) but supporters believe Wenger needs established players now to mount a serious title challenge and will be disappointed to learn that long time target Jackson Martinez will not be gracing the BPL just yet - the Colombian forward has agreed a move to La Liga side Atletico Madrid. However Adrien Rabiot still remains very much on the Gunners radar after the PSG player confirmed he may need to leave the Parisian club in order to find first team football.

According to the Daily Mail, Petr Cech has signed with Arsenal for £11million and will be in line to face his former club in the Community Shield on August 2nd.

There haven't been any official confirmations on Arsenal or Chelsea web sites or Twitter feeds as of yet but the Daily Mail aren't equivocating with their writing. They kick off their article with the line "Arsenal have completed the signing of Chelsea's Petr Cech..." Not too much uncertainty there. If true, both the acquisition and price are excellent for Arsenal. Cech may not be up to his former standard as the best goalkeeper in the world but he is still a significant upgrade over David Ospina and Wojceich Szczesny and in a tier of goalkeepers just behind Thibault Courtois and David De Gea at the top of the Premier League goalkeeping charts.

Petr Cech is set to meet with Chelsea later today to discuss his future.

Cech reportedly wants to stay in London, which would suggest a move to Arsenal, bur Chelsea are not fond of selling players to direct competitors and it's a bit unlikely they'll let him make the move to the Gunners. PSG are also interested in the goalkeeper's services and the Blues would rather sell him to the French club, at a reported price of around £11m. If Cech is at Arsenal next season, he should be a top three fantasy goalkeeper.

Chelsea will hold talks with Petr Cech to decide on his future at the club.

Cech has a year left on his contract with the Blues but is not content with his role at the club since Thibaut Courtois' arrival last summer. Cech has been relegated to a backup role and is not content with sitting on the bench. He hinted a few days ago that his life would be easiest if he were to remain in London, so he may be planning a move to Arsenal if Chelsea can be persuaded of it. It's hard to imagine Chelsea selling the goalkeeper to Arsenal and Manchester United, so a move to a different league must also be in play. There are numerous options here, and Cech's fantasy value won't be known for next season until his future is decided.

Petr Cech was quoted in the Telegraph as saying that his life overall would be easiest if he stayed in London which would, seemingly, mean a move to Arsenal.

Siting the desire to keep his family situation - schools, etc. - stable in London, Petr Cech hinted that a move from West London to North London and Arsenal is his most likely next step after the Chelsea board sanctioned a move to another Premier League club. The Czech international said "If I move, it brings difficulties, I must change everything, looking for housing, a school for children and so on." He didn't rule anything out but the tide certainly seems to be heading toward a move to the Emirates.

Goal.com is reporting that Petr Cech will choose Arsenal over PSG as his next club indicating a desire to start regularly and not uproot his life from London.

Would Chelsea prefer to lose their former number one to a potential Premier League competitor or the club that knocked them out of the Champions League this past season? Tough choice. Cech seems determined to leave now that it is clear that he is second choice behind Thibaut Courtois. There are rumors of a promise to allow him to leave for a club of his choosing after he agreed to stay on for Courtois' first year at the club. If this is true, it could be good news for Arsene Wenger who would certainly enjoy stealing a Chelsea legend who still has some good years left.

Petr Cech started for Chelsea in their friendly against Sydney FC yesterday.

Cech has been replaced by Thibaut Courtois as the main goalkeeper at Chelsea this season and wants to leave to a club where he will be the starter. He has a number of suitors and will most likely be gone by the summer. This move could be Chelsea's way of showcasing his skills and showing teams he can still play as a way to increase his price. His fantasy stock will increase next season if he ends up at a club where he's the starter.

Petr Cech will play some part of Sunday's match but may not start.

Jose Mourinho is unsure if Petr Cech will start but he will play some part of Chelsea's last match. This could very well be Cech's last match in a Chelsea uniform so it's not out of the question that he starts and is taken out early to get the fans' respect. Since we don't know how much either goalkeeper(Cech or Thibaut Courtois) will play on Sunday, it's very risky to play either one in fantasy. It's very likely neither one earns a clean sheet due to restricted playing time. Avoid both at all costs.

Petr Cech is in talks with Turkish club Besiktas about a possible summer move.

Cech has lost his position as Chelsea's number one goalkeeper and is looking to move somewhere else. The goalkeeper is 32 years old and still remains one of the best goalkeepers in the world, but Thibaut Courtois has replaced him at Stamford Bridge. There are bigger teams than Besiktas that are looking at Cech, so it's unknown if he'll head to Turkey or choose to remain in one of Europe's top leagues. If he ends up in the Premier League, he will likely be a top fantasy pick next season.
