Press conference

Cech or Leno: who will start in goal at Chelsea?

One of the major questions surrounding Unai Emery’s team selection against Manchester City last weekend centred around his goalkeeper.

Our head coach opted to start Petr Cech against the champions. So, will he do the same at Chelsea? 

“I am very happy with his performance,” Emery explained. “He has experience, he has quality, he has the capacity. 

“Also, with Bernd Leno [it’s the same]. They are two goalkeepers who are important for us. They have different qualities but for us in the way we want to play, they can [both] play. 

“For Saturday, the decision for me is easy. Petr Cech can continue to start the match, I believe in him. [But] If Bernd starts, I believe in him also.”
