According to reports from The Daily Star, Petr Cech is set to be dropped for Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Hull on Saturday.
The Czech glovesman was at fault for Chelsea’s third goal in their 3-1 win last weekend, painfully passing the ball to Cesc Fabregas before being cutely chipped by the one-time Gunners skipper.
And The Daily Star claim there is growing concern about Cech’s form at the Emirates Stadium, particularly in regards to his distribution.
Another factor is Arsene Wenger’s plans to start David Ospina in the Champions League against Bayern Munich; facing Hull would give him a chance to dispel any ring rust, having been used only in cup competitions so far this season.
Nonetheless, the north Londoners can’t afford to drop any more points in the Premier League, already twelve behind the pace-setters and now in danger of dropping out of the top four.
So, Arsenal fans, what’s your verdict on Cech? Should he start against Hull on Saturday?
