Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he has full confidence in both his top-flight keepers but for now Petr Cech will be getting the starting spot. That means Cech, who criticised his own performance in the defeat to Manchester City last week, will get to start again his old club Chelsea this weekend.
Arsenal brought in Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen over the summer but for now Cech gets the number one berth and the backing of the manager.
“I am very happy with his performance. He has experience, he has quality, he has the capacity. Also, with Bernd Leno [it’s the same]. They are two goalkeepers who are important for us,” Emery said.
“They have different qualities but for us in the way we want to play, they can [both] play. For Saturday, the decision for me is easy. Petr Cech can continue to start the match,
I believe in him. [But] If Bernd starts, I believe in him also.”
