Plenty of disgruntled Arsenal fans are criticising Petr Cech after loss to Man City

And they're all saying the same thing...


It’s still far, far too early in the season to start writing an Arsenal title tilt off, but this week hasn’t been a great one for Arsene Wenger’s men.

Having thrown away a one goal lead in their 2-1 defeat at Goodison Park on Tuesday night, history repeated itself against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Leading at the break through Theo Walcott’s early goal, Arsenal conceded a Leroy Sane equaliser with not even two minutes played of the second half. Raheem Sterling added what proved to be the winner in the 71st minute, and the away side offered little in the way of threat during what remained of the match.

Inevitably, frustrated Arsenal fans were quick to point fingers after such a lacklustre display. As we showed you earlier, Mesut Özil took his fair of flak – but he wasn’t alone.

Despite out-passing many of his teammates (for the first 70 minutes, at least), Petr Cech came in for stick from some Arsenal supporters for his poor distribution, as highlighted by the tweets below.

And judging by this, they might have a point. Compared to Wojciech Szczesny – on loan at Roma from Arsenal – Cech’s distribution didn’t look all that impressive at all.
