Ian Wright reacts on Twitter to Cech performance, makes Arsenal title claim

Petr Cech Arsenal

The Arsenal great was thrilled by the goalkeeper's display against Everton and has been discussing the north London side's title chances.

Ian Wright could only applaud on Twitter as he watched Petr Cech in action on Saturday evening.

Indeed, Arsenal beat Everton 2-1 during Saturday's late kick-off but the north London side had goalkeeper Cech to thank once again for some brave stops.

One that stood out - which prompted Wright's tweet - was a low dive to deny Gerard Deulofeu in the second half. The Everton man should have done far better but that doesn't detract from Cech doing his job to the best of his ability.

Meanwhile, Wright is also adamant Arsenal's time may have come with regards to challenging for the Premier League title.

Of course, it's a bold claim anytime Arsenal are tipped to win the league. They've looked like challenging throughout the last decade but have always fallen short at one time or another.

The season before last, meanwhile, Manchester City won the Premier League title despite the Gunners topping the table for the majority of the campaign.

But, after their win against Bayern Munich and recent domestic form, no one can begrudge Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans their celebrations. At this moment in time, they are one of the form teams in Europe, if not the outright form team on the continent.
