The new Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech had a very scary debut for the Gunners when he allowed West Ham to put two past him in the opening League game, but has since been unbeaten with clean sheets against Liverpool, Newcastle and now Stoke.
This has put him in the wonderful position of being able to break the record of clean sheets in the Premier League next week at Stamford Bridge. Cech is currently tying with David James on 169 each, but he could become the sole holder of the clean sheet record if he keeps his old team-mates out next Saturday lunchtime.
With such a high profile game next weekend it is very likely that we will see some rotation in midweek against Zagreb, especially with the glut of games coming up in the next month, so perhaps we will see Ospina get his first appearance of the season, but I really doubt that Wenger will make changes in defence. Our forwards and midfielders are having trouble putting the ball in the net but our recent wins have been built with the basis of a solid back line.
Petr has taken more control of our defence with every game, and I can see the Czech international racking up an extraordinary clean sheet record in the next few years. A record that will stand for a long long time….
