Petr Cech has insisted that he is 100% ready for coming out of retirement if he is requested by Frank Lampard. The Chelsea manager made the surprise inclusion of the 38-year-old in the Chelsea squad as a result of poor performances from Kepa Arrizabalaga. However, it should be noted that Cech retired from the game […]
Based around the correct scores in Premier League and Championship games, the Sky Super 6 is effectively like a football version of the lottery, where you need to work out the exact results in six chosen football fixtures. It might be considered as appearing mundane, but the chance to take between £250,000 and £1 million […]
When a new manager joins a club and immediately buys a goalkeeper, it almost always means the end for the current number one at the club. That looked to be the case at Arsenal after Unai Emery joined the North London outfit and instantly forked out close to £23m on a new goalkeeper in Bernd […]
Arsenal are serious contenders for Europa League glory this season. The Gunners will face CSKA Moscow in the quarter-finals and plenty of punters will be backing Arsene Wenger’s side to secure their spot in the next round. With a top four Premier League finish looking unlikely, winning the Europa League may be Arsenal’s best chance […]
Arsenal has a number of established first team footballers at the moment who have showed unwillingness to accept the extension offers of the club and are now about to enter the last season of their present contracts. While that is worrying many of the clubs fans, Arsene Wenger, the head honcho, has remained calm and […]
Mauricio Pochettino has surprisingly claimed that it is not advisable to compare Arsenal and Tottenham at this moment, but he is feeling confident that his team can beat Arsenal during the weekend despite Spurs’ poor form.
Tottenham have not won any games in their last six matches. They are clearly looking like a team devoid of confidence, but the North London derby has produced some surprising results in its history.
On his day, Petr Cech is – and has been for quite some time – one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
The Gunners shot stopper, who moved to the Emirates Stadium from rivals Chelsea last summer, has performed admirably this season and looks set to stay at Arsenal for the foreseeable future.
Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman reckons that the signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea has finally solved the goalkeeping problems for the Gunners.
Ever since Seaman left the club more than a decade ago, manager Arsene Wenger has been plagued by goalkeeper issues. Jens Lehman appeared to provide some respite and the problems have mounted since his departure several years ago.
The father of the Belgian shot stopper Thibaut Courtois has clearly said that his son is not ready to be second in the pecking order at Chelsea. So, before having him, the Blues management will have to make a decision on the future of their first choice goalie Petr Cech.
Courtois had made a move to Stamford Bridge in July 2011 after leaving Genk, but, in the last 3 years, he hasn’t played a single match for Chelsea. He had been loaned out to the Spanish club Atletico Madrid immediately after his arrival and since then, he has been there only. He has already made close to 100 league appearances for Atletico and is currently their no. 1 goalkeeper.
Two of the experienced Chelsea players, Branislav Ivanovic and Frank Lampard, will not be seen in action for the next 4 weeks or so. Both of them had got injured during the match against Liverpool last year.
Jose Mourinho, the man in charge at Chelsea, said that after his team’s victory against Southampton FC on the first day of 2014.
Ivanovic had made his way out of the ground in the earlier stages of the game against the Reds after suffering a knee blow, while, Lampard had done a bit of damage to his leg muscles just moments before the half time break and hadn’t gone onto the pitch in the second half.
