Arsenal were hugely thankful for goalkeeper Petr Cech in the 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough.
The former Chelsea goalkeeper produced a string of excellent saves to keep the newly promoted team at bay. It was a rather surprising performance from the home team at the Emirates stadium. Arsenal came into the game with an opportunity to stretch ahead in the Premier League title race. After Tottenham could only manage a 0-0 draw against newly promoted Bournemouth, Arsenal were eyeing the top spot with a couple of points ahead of the chasing pack.
