The club revealed that the goal keeper missed the match due to a minor groin injury which isn’t serious to keep him on the sidelines for weeks. The club used it’s official Twitter account to tell the fans why the keeper missed the match as you can see below.
Statement from the club read;
“For those of you asking, Petr Cech misses Arsenal Vs Stoke match due to a minor groin issue.”
Most of the Arsenal fans were rather happy that the keeper didn’t take part in the match because they no longer trust him nowadays due to silly mistakes he makes these days.
David Ospina was however very great in today’s match even though he didn’t have much to do throughout the match due to a magnificent performance from the team.
