Hector Bellerin believes Petr Cech is the best in the Premier League

Petr Cech Arsenal

The Arsenal goalkeeper was impressive again in the 0-0 draw with Stoke City.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin says he believes they probably have the best goalkeeper in the Premier League in Petr Cech.

The goalkeeper, a summer signing from Chelsea, was once again in fine form on Sunday afternoon, with several impressive saves in the 0-0 draw with Stoke City.

Cech has proved to be an excellent capture so far, helping to tighten up the Arsenal defence, which is currently the joint third best in the division for goals conceded.

Similarly, his side are joint second when it comes to clean sheets also, and Bellerin says that is because they have the best goalkeeper in the Premier League.

“We feel very confident with him in goal,” he told arsenal.com.

“It is very important to have a solid goalkeeper and Petr Cech is one of the best. I think he has given us that confidence at the back.”

"It helps that this is a solid team defensively [that] has played a lot of teams together, and that you have probably the best goalkeeper in the league playing for you.”

Arsenal fans will be hoping that Cech can now maintain this type of form for the rest of the season.

The kind of defensive record they have enjoyed already with him in goal is very much title winning form and it will be vital to maintain that as the season progresses.

The goalkeeper has already saved them numerous points this season, as was predicted at the beginning of the campaign, and is likely to maintain key to their title hopes in the second half of the campaign.
