Arsene Wenger offered Petr Cech the lifeline to revive his career after Jose Mourinho obviously marred his self-confidence with consistent benchwarming.
The 33-year-old arrived the Emirates stadium low on confidence, partly why we lost our first game against West ham due to some mistakes. The shot stopper has obviously overcome the debacle to break the Premier League’s all time clean sheet record previously held by David James.
He has other problems now, like the decision on when to remove his helmet and also how his former club are faring at the moment.
He told The Sun: “I had to take the decision to leave even if it was not easy.
“The time has shown that the decision was the right one.
“Every team can have a time when it goes badly.
“Always when it seemed that Chelsea would rise, they fell. So this problem is probably bigger than everybody supposed.”
While we sympathise with our Chelsea counterparts, we have our eyes set on the League title. The immediate concern is to defeat Manchester City on Monday night.
Cech obviously will be hoping to extend his clean sheet record while he hopes the likes of Mikel Arteta and Oliver Giroud keep their cool by not scoring an own goal.
