Petr Cech ruled out

Manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that goalkeeper Petr Cech will be out for around 3 to 4 weeks.

This rules him out of the season at a crucial time, while he will also miss the second leg of the Champions League game against Barcelona.

Lampard embarks on a TV career

Frank Lampard is regarded to be as the best or one of the best players who has worn the Chelsea jersey and the impact that he has made in the Premier League club will never be forgotten as the Englishman cemented his place in the history-books of Chelsea by becoming the top goal-scorer of the club and made over 400 appearances.

In this period of time, Lampard was able to lift a number of titles including: Champions League and Premier League just to name a few of them.

It’s been over 1 year since Lampard officially announced his retirement from playing at the international stage and his time at club level is almost over as well. Lampard has a contract with New York City which extends until July 2017 and it’s very likely that the Englishman will decide to hang up his boots and retire all together.

Per: take advantage of Cech’s brilliance

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker believes that the club should take advantage of Petr Cech’s brilliance by reclaiming the league title after a long time. Arsenal have not won the Premier League since the 2003-04 season.

They managed to achieve this title victory by staying unbeaten throughout the season. It is a feat that has never been managed since then. Despite this achievement, Arsenal have been mocked in recent years for their failure to achieve anything close to a title challenge. However, they appear to be in pole position to end this trophy drought.

The Premier League is a realistic target for Arsenal

When it comes to being on the spotlight of the media, in the world of football it’s usually the forwards or the more offensive players the one that receive all the attention as well as the praise and there are other positions in the game which don’t receive as much praise or attention.

While Olivier Giroud and MesutOzil are out in the offensive lines taking charge of the attacking duties of Arsenal, PetrCech is on the other side of the pitch doing what needs to be done in order to keep his team from conceding goals and even though it’s been less than 1 year since Cech signed for Arsenal for a transfer fee of only €10 million, he has already made a colossal impact in the team.

Is Begovic the cover Chelsea need?

Having begrudgingly sold Petr Cech to Arsenal in the summer, Chelsea fans were left wondering just how much of a blow it would be to the club to lose such an influential member of their squad. While there weren't many who could argue when Thibaut Courtois replaced Cech as first-choice keeper following Jose Mourinho's return to the club, selling the 33-year-old to a fellow title rival didn't go down well with all Chelsea fans despite the arrival of Asmir Begovic from Stoke.
