When Arsenal signed Petr Cech from Chelsea, John Terry claimed that the goalkeeper would earn us ’12-15′ points in a season and it turns out he wasn’t wrong.
JJ Ball from the Telegraph has actually worked out that the Czech international has earned us nine points in 22 games, leaving him very much on track to win us a minimum of 12 points come May.
Despite a shaky start against West Ham during our season opener, the 33-year-old has gone on to perform in just about every match he’s featured in. He’s been called into action more times than our defenders would probably like to admit and he’s definitely worth the £11m we’re reported to have spent on him.
Notable matches include our 0-0 draw at home against Liverpool, in which Cech pulled off at least two world class saves to give us the point; the north London derby at home; our narrow 1-0 win against Newcastle; and our draw against Stoke away most recently, when he pulled off a superb double-save.
The man is already a legend and he’s only been with us half a season.
