I can understand why the new Arsenal number one has come out with some words of support for his struggling former club. After all, Petr Cech spent 11 years at Stamford Bridge while the mega millions of Roman Abramovich helped Chelsea to their most successful period in history.
And the Czech Republic keeper still has a lot of close ties with people at the club, so when he offers his thoughts on what is causing the current problems across London and whether Jose Mourinho and the Chelsea players will be able to put it right, I do not think you could find many more qualified to speak.
Right now Arsenal fans are loving the way Chelsea are struggling for form and results, especially as our own form has started to look good and the victory over Man United in the last Premier League game has put us within touching distance of the top of the table.
But I think we should take heed of Cech´s assertion that Chelsea are still in with a good chance of retaining the EPL title. They may be just two places outside the drop zone but they are still only eight points behind Arsenal and that sort of gap is nowhere near big enough for us to relax.
In fact, relaxing is not an option for Arsenal. Even if we were nine points clear with only three games left to play I would still be nervous, although I would be more than happy to see the Gunners in that position. Do you think Cech will be proved right about his former club?
