Cech or Leno? Emery picks starter against Chelsea

Share

Unai Emery couldn't have asked for a tougher start to life as Arsenal manager as hot on the heels of defeat to Manchester City in his Premier League bow, the Gunners travel to Chelsea on Saturday.

Cech, 36, struggled with Emery's orders to play out from the back in the Spanish coach's first game in charge as the Gunners lost 2-0 to Premier League champions Manchester City last weekend.

"I am very happy with his [Cech's] performance".

Impressive stuff, but will it be enough for him to earn a start on Saturday?

Cech subsequently became embroiled in a Twitter spat with Leno's former club Bayer Leverkusen and Emery's tactics were branded as "stupid" by former England manager Sam Allardyce. 'He is now with the team and knowing and learning English conversation with us and can understand all the things we want to do tactically on the pitch. "He has experience, he has quality, he has the capacity", he added. One player who received much of the criticism was goalkeeper Petr Cech.

"We didn't lose because of our personality, our idea, our style".

Oil up on Iran sanctions
With strong global demand and if the fears of Turkish economic contagion are overblown , we could see a very tight oil market. This is subjected to the U.S sanctions on the oil exports from Iran, returning in the month of November.

'Yes, he is okay every day and is training good, ' said Unai Emery. I want to see how the pressing from the front is going to work.

Sarri later told media why Hazard had started on the bench for the clash at the Kirklees Stadium: "I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes".

Speaking on Sky Sports show The Debate, Rosenior said: "Emery's probably spoken to the directors and said this is the way I play".

"I don't agree that after 22 years it takes a while to improve - the 22 years were great, and Arsene has invented the best football in the country, probably across Europe".

Ainsley Maitland-Niles was drafted in to start at left-back against Pep Guardiola's men but the 20-year-old limped off midway through the first half and it's been confirmed he's out for up to two months with a fractured leg.
