Jens - Why Cech is one of the best ever

Petr Cech was undoubtably our standout performer in Sunday’s north London derby at White Hart Lane.

Our goalkeeper pulled off a string of fine saves to deny Jan Vertonghen, Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane, and even thwarted Christian Eriksen from close range only for Dele Alli to steer in the rebound.

The best of Cech from the derby

Now well into his 12th year in English football, Cech is a seasoned Premier League campaigner, and Jens Lehmann remembers the impact the Czech stopper made when he joined Chelsea back in 2004.

“Fortunately it wasn’t [initially] too big at Chelsea, because when he came we won the championship,” Lehmann told Arsenal Player. “In the years after, when he was 23 or 24, you could see what a great goalkeeper he was and year by year he’s improved.

“I’ve always rated him as one of the best goalkeepers ever. It’s good to see that he’s doing even better this season than last season.

“He’s calm so he calms people down, he’s got a presence. He’s a fantastic guy and a big, big benefit and asset for Arsenal now.

“He’s credible in what he says and what he does.”
