Emery hails Cech as Arsenal keeper frustrates Everton

Arsenal 4-2 Vorskla – Former Dortmund Trio Shines For Arsenal

Posted: Sep. 23, 2018 8:00 am Updated: Sep. A first clean sheet.

Unlike his predecessor Arsene Wenger, often content to stick with the tried and tested even amid a poor run, the ex-Paris Saint-Germain boss believes the more players in form - and in the frame to start - the better.

Things are really starting to click for Arsenal under new coach Unai Emery.

Emery's decision sparked claims Cech was on the way out, but the Arsenal captain had other ideas as he rolled back the years with a vintage display.

"Petr, he has a lot of experience and quality", Emery said.

'But I think he did very well without the risk of losing another'.

We don't know now but it's his knee.

Toward the end of the game, Cech drew a gasp, then a roar of approval, from Arsenal fans when he lofted a deft pass over Everton forward Richarlison and picked out right back Hector Bellerin.

Everton had the better of the first half at Emirates Stadium, with Richarlison — back after a three-match domestic ban for headbutting an opponent — proving risky down the left wing and forcing a good parried save out of Cech.

"This current Arsenal side, as good as they are on the eye, will always give you a chance and I expect Everton to find the back of the net at the Emirates, but Bruce Rioch was in charge of the Gunners (January 1996) the last time they lost at home to Everton".

Alexandre Lacazette & Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored the goals that got 3 points but surely it was Petr Cech's imperial performance in goal that sees the Red & White half of North London level on points with their Lilly-white neighbours.

Emery said he had been about to make a substitution just before the first goal and, when asked whether he would have taken Lacazette off, said: "Maybe, yeah".

Marco Silva called for video assistant referees to be introduced in the Premier League after referee Jon Moss and assistant Harry Lennard failed to spot a "clear offside" for Arsenal's crucial second goal.

"The result didn't reflect what both teams played during the match".

Aubameyang is having to play on the left wing to accommodate Lacazette as the team's central striker, but it is not stopping the Gabon striker from scoring.

They haven't won the Premier League title since their unbeaten triumph in 2003-04.

The Gunners have now recorded four straight wins in all competitions after a 4-2 win over Vorskla on Thursday in the Europa League.
