Unai Emery gives Petr Cech derby backing

Unai Emery gives Petr Cech derby backing

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has backed Petr Cech to keep his starting role against Chelsea and praised the goalkeeper's performance against Manchester City despite his struggles to play the ball out of the back. And I think that he is now in a situation where he will get time because of the manager we had previously and how fantastic he was and how well he was doing.

Alexandre Lacazette may not have said anything in public, but he's definitely smarting after being benched for Arsenal's Premier League opener and the forward's been practicing his free-kick skills ahead of Saturday's mammoth clash against Chelsea.

Emery is trying to instill a new philosophy at Arsenal as he wants his goalkeeper be playing out from the back.

Many still believe that Nabil Fekir is a player that is needed on Merseyside and there have already been tentative suggestions that Klopp could make a move for him in January.

Arsenal signed Leno from Leverkusen this summer but new head coach Unai Emery still opted to start Cech against City in their season-opening Premier League game.

"For Saturday, the decision for me is easy, because we'll continue to start the match with Petr Cech".

"That was a good thing, [despite] us losing 2-0".

The Gunners were given a tough start to the season when the fixture generator put them up against City and Chelsea in their first two league games.

And in a way Cech's choice of hobby feels strangely fitting for a man whose game is based on the percussive fundamentals of goalkeeping - he is an archetypal, old-school "shot-stopper" - but in the modern game, clubs are keen for their goalkeepers to be more than just blunt instruments. Emery is also concerned by Arsenal's historically poor injury record and wants to select players from fully fit squad but has faced early setback with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac both out for about six weeks.

"This week Nacho Monreal is working every day, training every day with us", Emery said.

Experienced Swiss global Lichtsteiner is a right-back by trade and Emery is hopeful Monreal will be fit to face Chelsea after returning to training this week.
