Petr Cech and Bernd Leno

ARSENAL head coach Unai Emery looks set to name Petr Cech to play against his old club on Saturday after praising the "experience" that the goalkeeper brings to the team.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has slammed Bayer Leverkusen for trolling him on social media during Sunday's 2-0 loss to Manchester City and lobbying for their former player Bernd Leno to play instead.

Arsenal have received a major boost as Unai Emery has confirmed Nacho Monreal is available for Saturday's Premier League clash with Chelsea. "[But] if Bernd starts, I believe in him also", Emery told a news conference on Thursday.


Chelsea reportedly turned down the chance to sign Nabil Fekir this summer, with the Blues believing they had enough players in his position.

"We spoke also, and Cech, he is doing very well". Emery's side travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday for a London derby against Chelsea hoping to bounce back from their opening weekend defeat Alexandre Lacazette started on the bench against City, but former Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is confident that France global will join him in the starting line-up sooner or later. However, getting Alvaro Morata to up his goal-rate continues to be a priority. Leno is just starting with us.

Hazard appeared to let the game slip over his future when he changed his display picture on Twitter to a shot of him as captain in a pre-season match against Lyon. It took Guardiola time to get Manchester City playing the way he wanted.


Chelsea have won five of their last six home league games against Arsenal, with the exception being a 0-0 draw last season. He said: "Nacho has started training with the group, so maybe he can come in for the next match".

"We want a good preparation before and a good response on the pitch to that preparation".

"We are going to play away but we need to keep our personality, keep our mentality", he said.
