Arsenal number 1 goalie Petr Cech broke silence earlier this week regarding the criticism he has received so far this season.

Unai Emery has retained the former Chelsea goal stopper as his preferred goalkeeper despite signing Bernd Leno from Bayern Leverkusen over the summer.

The spotlight has been on Cech following a series of errors while trying to play out from the back during the early weeks of the campaign, errors which has almost proved costly for Unai Emery’s side.

But Cech spoke to Sky Sports and said he believed the criticism was somewhat harsh.

“Everyone picked up on two passes against Manchester City and Cardiff,” he said. “Obviously, from that number of passes you can make a mistake. I try not to make a mistake. That’s clear and obvious.

“You want to use the goalkeeper as an advantage as a spare man. I am not happy with these two passes. We got away with it at Cardiff but I think my overall game has been strong.

“I’m lucky nothing bad happened. I know that everyone will be waiting for the next mistake and trying to put more pressure but that’s the way it goes. Playing in goal in the Premier League you play with lots of pressure.”

However, Cech has come under heavy criticism after Saturday’s game against Newcastle United with the Czech Republic international goalkeeper running into trouble with the ball at his feet.

Some fans took to Twitter to express their anger with some fans going as far as tagging Cech as “liability” after his performance on Saturday.

  1. Unai Umery system is new things Cech so it will take time before the team get used to it. Thank God he has not made serious mistake. MC goalkeeper made a mistake but you hear their supporter put pressure on him. This system requires a goalkeeper is quick to his feet and hands. The goalkeeper must be one that that read the game really fast and get the ball to them as quickly as he can. Don’t forget Cech is the standing captain until the assigned captain return. I am when KOS returns Cech will go to the beach.

  2. This is a rediculous concern,and a stupid practise! To pass the ball around in your own penalty area only invites disaster.
    It should be cleared via channels where it can be competed for safely!!
