Emery ends Arsenal goalkeeper debate with Cech assurance

The London derby between Chelsea and Arsenal on Saturday evening is the highlight, with new bosses Maurizio Sarri and Unai Emery facing off.

Though he produced several impressive saves in last weekend's 2-0 loss to Manchester City, Cech came under the microscope for some jittery moments in executing Emery's playing style.

"I want us to show more personality in each match to improve, so the performances arrive quickly. I want us to continue with this work and to be competitive for 90 minutes, but with a better performance both individually and collectively".

Petr Cech will continue in goal for the Gunners despite being criticised for aspects of his display against City.

Cesc Fabregas has been ruled out of Chelsea's game against his former club Arsenal after picking up an injury. Although Sarri has hinted the Croatian global may start from the bench as he's not yet ready to play the full ninety minutes.

"He has a pain, not in the knee, [but] near the knee", said Sarri.




Despite the City defeat, Emery will not allow for a departure from the principles he is instilling at Arsenal.

However, Nacho Monreal should be ready to start after taking part in full training all week, while Emery said continuing with right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner - who replaced Maitland-Niles - is also an option.

Arsenal finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League place in successive seasons. Prior to that, Chelsea had scored in 12 consecutive home matches against the Gunners in all competitions.

He said: "Arsenal coach Unai Emery is going to need a lot of time to work out the Premier League and work out his best team".

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's next league goal will be his 150th in the big five European leagues. I say disappointing but I don't know what everybody was expecting?

"Jorginho I don't think has got any of those qualities".
