I honestly believe that Unai Emery was right to start the season with Petr Cech as Arsenal’s Number One keeper, but after seeing Bernd Leno in action over these last few weeks I think he is easily as good if not better than the veteran Cech. The German couldn’t do anything about Bellerin’s deflection in last night’s game but he still put in another great performance. The ex-Ireland star Tony Cascarino thinks the Cech could lose his first team spot permanently. “He started the season as Arsenal’s No 1 goalkeeper but I would be very surprised if Petr Cech was to get back into the team now,”
“Bernd Leno is a country mile in front of Cech in terms of ability with his feet and Unai Emery seems likely to want his side to continue playing out from the back over the long term.
“Leno might get into the odd bit of trouble but generally he is really at ease with the ball at his feet and has no fear of exchanging passes with his defenders. Furthermore, the Germany international showcased his agility in making a couple of fine saves last night.”
So what do you think. Let’s have a vote to see what the majority think…..
