The Arsenal goalkeeper looked out of his comfort zone against Cardiff City yesterday.
Arsenal beat Cardiff 3-2 at the Cardiff City Stadium yesterday, but it could be argued that they were lucky to win the game, with Petr Cech looking worryingly shaky with the ball at his feet, and some Gunners fans took to Twitter, demanding that he be dropped for their next match.
The north London outfit now sit in ninth spot in the table following back-to-back Premier League wins, and are four points adrift of the top four, but Cech’s form will be a real concern for Unai Emery.
The Spaniard brought Bernd Leno in from Bayer Leverkusen this summer for around £19.3 million, but he has surprisingly not played the German in a competitive game thus far.
And Emery will have a big decision to make in two week’s time when Arsenal travel to Newcastle United.

Petr Cech has conceded in every game this season. Why on earth did we signed Leno if we didn’t want to solve a problem?— Bhadmus Hakeem (@Bhadoosky) 2 September 2018

Just caught up with the match, as was unable to watch it today.— Princess Gooner ⚽ (@GoonerGirl1969) 2 September 2018
First impressions were
Lacazette has to play for 90 mins, as much as possible. He gives us so much.
Torreira needs to start, regularly.
Cech is going to age me.
Loving Emery’s passion.#CARARS
That mistake from Cech was worse than Alisson’s IMO.— Dean Jones (@DeanJonesBR) 2 September 2018
At least Alisson knew he was taking a risk, that Cech pass was just terrible and he’s lucky to get away with it

Forget a clean sheet, I’d be happy getting through a game with clean pants.
