Petr Cech facing three-week absence says Unai Emery

Grant SmithOct 01, 2018

Alexandre Lacazette wanted an early Arsenal penalty with referee Anthony Taylor unmoved and minutes later the forward spurned a golden opportunity, beating Cathcart to the ball but then sending a deft chip wide of Ben Foster's goal.

The Gunners beat Watford 2-0 at the Emirates yesterday thanks to a Craig Cathcart own goal and Mesut Ozil's well-taken effort.

Unai Emery will take encouragement from the fact his side survived periods of pressure against Watford and there were strong performances at the back. I spoke about this situation [about him wanting Ramsey to extend] in the pre-season and now it is the same. But Emery also appeared to suggest he understood every player had to maximise his earning potential during what is a short career. It's the same for Emi Martinez, the same, because we have three very good goalkeepers and I think, also, Petr Cech, his performance is very important for us.

Arsenal have been in impressive form ever since losing their opening two games of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

Not for the first time this season, Arsenal, who climb to fifth, could be considered slightly lucky after delivering another inconsistent display.

"I think we need the energy, the performance, the concentration to only be thinking about our matches. Our players in the first half were a little nervous and we need to continue in being calm".

"Our moments arrived in the second half and we showed efficiency to score". "We knew before the match it would be a very hard match, but also, we needed to be competitive in those moments with Deeney".

Ramsey has played in all six of Arsenal's Premier League games but it is unclear whether Emery sees him primarily as a central midfielder or in a more advanced No 10 position. We did that, so we feel we deserved more.

It will be a blow to Cech to have picked up this injury as he has been performing very well recently and was our best player during the 2-0 win over Everton last weekend.
