Ex-Arsenal Winger Urges Club To Sign Jack Butland

Former Arsenal winger Perry Groves believes the club should jump at the opportunity to signing Jack Butland from Stoke City when the season comes to a close. The England international recently witnessed the Potters’ relegation from the top-flight and he has since been heavily tipped to pursue a fresh challenge elsewhere.

As such, Groves believes the Gunners should take him in a heartbeat after having progressed into one of England’s best shot-stoppers, he told Sportingbet: “I want Jack Butland to replace Petr Cech as Arsenal’s goalkeeper and I would take him in a heartbeat. I think he’s one of the best young goalkeepers in the country and he has a huge physical presence. Any goalkeeper that’s playing for Stoke will look vulnerable, but he would only improve at Arsenal. We would be able to get him for a good price once Stoke are relegated too.”

Arsene Wenger Explains Why Alexandre Lacazette Has Been Substituted Early

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has explained as to why Alexandre Lacazette has found himself being substituted on most occasions with the club. The France international joined the north Londoners from Lyon during the summer of 2017, and he has since contributed a decent tally of nine goals in 26 appearances across all competitions.

Despite being used to playing regularly for the entire 90 minutes with Lyon, Lacazette has now enjoyed a similar run with the Gunners, having completed the feat on just occasions, and when quizzed on the matter, Wenger appeared to suggest that it was more to do with the striker’s adaptation period.

Cech Inspired By Ryan Mason’s Determination

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech says he is inspired by the determination of Ryan Mason following his fractured skull injury earlier this year. The player had to undergo surgery at the Saint Mary’s Hospital in London following a clash of heads with Chelsea’s Gary Cahill.

Hull City faced the Blues on January 22 last year when the incident happened. Many believed he would not return to the game in playing capacity due to magnitude of damage. This was confirmed on Tuesday that the 26-year old player would no longer play professional football following advice from world renowned neurologist and neurosurgeons.

Petr Cech Still Hopeful Of Champions League Qualification

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech remains hopeful that the Gunners can qualify for next season’s Champions League despite their average performance at the domestic stage this term. The north London club are currently 12 points adrift of the top-four in the Premier League, but the 35-year-old believes his side can still reach the elite competition via their Europa League campaign.

Petr Cech indirectly blames Alexandre Lacazette for Tottenham Hotspur loss

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has indirectly put the blame on Alexandre Lacazette for the north London derby defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. The Gunners were second-best for most of the game, and they had two clear-cut chances at the end which could have changed the complexion of the match.

Petr Cech Unhappy with Southampton Draw

Petr Cech was understandably disappointed after his Arsenal team were involved in a 1-1 win Southampton during the weekend. The Czech Republic shot stopper claims that his teammates were not prepared well for this match. Arsenal have been going through a poor run of form of late and have dropped several points. As a result, the team are in danger of missing out on European football altogether – considering the competition and quality shown by the likes of Burnley this season. Olivier Giroud had to come up with a late equaliser in order to help Arsenal get at least a point from the match.

After having conceded several early goals in recent matches, Arsenal witnessed Charlie Austin opening the scoring after just three minutes on the clock. Even though it seemed like Arsenal would drop more points after the recent defeat against Manchester United, the team clawed back in the final minutes to get a point. Even then, goalkeeper Petr Cech was not happy with the outcome as it meant that the team was dropping more points in the league. Cech, though, claimed that it was an excellent second-half performance from his team and that they deserved the point. If Arsenal continued to drop such points against teams lower down the table, the team may be finding itself hard to get anything out of the campaign.

Petr Cech surprised by decision in Manchester City defeat

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has admitted that he was surprised by the refereeing decision during his side's 3-1 Premier League defeat to Manchester City on Sunday. The Gunners had a glimmer of hope of securing a draw after they found the score sheet midway through the second half.

However, their chances of securing a draw soon diminished after the Citizens popped up with the third goal of the game, which was visibly offside by the naked eye. Both David Silva and Gabriel Jesus were on the wrong side of the Gunners' defence, but the linesman adjudged the goal to be correct.

Allegri frustrated with Juventus

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri was left annoyed after his team could only draw against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League - a win would have qualified Juventus for the knock-out stage of the competition, but now they will have to wait for the next match in order to try and secure their place in the next round.

Juventus struggled against Sporting Lisbon, and it was more the manner that the team performed that caused the manager to be frustrated.

The Italian team is currently second in their group behind Barcelona and will have to win their last game if they want to make it to the next round. Allegri’s team reached the final last season which they lost against Real Madrid and will be hoping that they could at least replicate this performance again this campaign.

Arsenal must decide whether to take Europa League seriously - Petr Cech

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has insisted that the club must quickly underline the importance of the Europa League this term.

The Gunners will be plying their trade in the competition for the first time since its inauguration after they finished fifth in the Premier League standings last season.

The likes of Cech and Alexandre Lacazette have previous experience playing in the competition with the former having won it with Chelsea back in the 2012-13 season. The Blues were relegated to Europe's second competition following their surprise exit in the Champions League group stage, and they made it count by winning the trophy for the only time in their history.

Speaking to Standard Sport, Cech said: "You make your decision. At Chelsea, we were really disappointed to have been knocked of the group stage [of the Champions League] but we decided that for the first time and the last time, hopefully, we play in the Europa League so we want to win. So you decide what you want to do — either you take it seriously and you go to win it and you give yourself the chance to do it or you give yourself different priorities and see how it goes."
