Petr Cech provides statistics to prove he should still be Arsenal No.1

Petr Cech has hit back at the critics who claim he is struggling to adapt to the demands of new manager Unai Emery and his possession based game plan.

The former Chelsea goalkeeper was expected to step aside following the signing of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, but the 36-year-old has started all four games so far this season.

Cech has, at times, looked uneasy with the ball at his feet, coming perilously close to scoring an own goal against Manchester City and presenting Harry Arter with a golden chance to open the scoring in the recent win over Cardiff.

"I had 166 passes in the first four games which is a huge amount and everybody picked up on only two," said Cech, defending his performances.

"It’s obviously not a great thing to do when you pass the ball in a dangerous area, like I did at Cardiff when I gave it to Harry Arter but it’s part of the game that you can always make a mistake.”

"If you look at the evolution of Barcelona and Man City, it didn’t happen overnight. As they got more familiar with that [style], the results came.

"We’re now in that process of getting to know what advantage it gives us.’
