Arsenal manager Unai Emery has indicated that he has the full confidence on goalkeeper Petr Cech, who started the season opener versus Manchester City. The 36-year-old was impressive with key saves during the 2-0 defeat at the hands of the reigning champions but his poor distribution skills led to fans and pundits alike calling for Bernd Leno to start between the sticks.
However, speaking to reporters, Emery has stressed that he is ‘very happy’ with the performance of the veteran goalkeeper and does not see the reason for a change for the London derby against Chelsea this weekend, he said: “I am very happy with his performance. I think he has experience, quality, and capacity like a first goalkeeper with us - and also Bernd Leno. They are two goalkeepers important for us. Different qualities but for us, like we want to play, the two goalkeepers can play. Saturday the decision is easy, Petr Cech will continue to start the match, I believe in him. If he starts bad, I believe in him also.”
