Arsenal welcomes Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Monday and this will be their third match in October after getting an impressive win against Fulham at the start of this month.
Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech got injured in their match against Watford about one month ago and the Czech Republican international has returned to full training after missing out on a number of games due to a hamstring problem. Cech’s return puts Bernd Leno on pressure because it’s uncertain whether the matches which he has played in the absence of the first choice goalkeeper have shown that he is better.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery held a press conference on Thursday ahead of their match against Leicester City and he was asked whether Petr Cech would be in-goal when they take on the Foxes. He confirmed the return of Petr Cech but says that the Czech Republican isn’t ready to play since he just came back.
“Petr Cech is getting better from his injury but he’s not training with the group. But I think he’s very close to start with us.” Unai Emery told Arsenal Player.
The Arsenal fans who believe in Bernd Leno will be happy about this because the young German goalkeeper will get more chances to prove that he is qualified to be Unai Emery’s first choice goalkeeper.
