Petr Cech picked up a hamstring injury when taking a goal-kick in the 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday, with new-signing Bernd Leno taking his place in the first-half, but should the veteran keeper come straight back into the side on his return?
According to Metro, Arsenal boss Unai Emery confirmed after the game that Cech would be out for no longer than three weeks, but based on what we have seen from Leno so far, the 36-year-old ex-Chelsea stopper may struggle to get back into the starting XI, despite being trusted by Emery so far this season.
The Gunners paid Bayer Leverkusen £22m over the summer for their German international keeper Leno, and his start in the Carabao Cup clash over Brentford would not have filled Arsenal fans with much confidence as a misplaced touch nearly went straight into his own net.
Against Watford though, Leno produced a fine save from Watford man Troy Deeney to keep the scores level at 0-0 and he was rewarded with a clean sheet and three points as Mesut Ozil and a Craig Cathcart own goal saw Emery’s side climb to fifth in the table.
So, Arsenal fans, based on current performances who do you think should start in goal when Cech is back and fit? Have your say by voting below.
