Mathieu Debuchy has recently described new signing Petr Cech as the complete goalkeeper.

The defender, who was injured for a lot of the 2014/15 season, has highlighted the importance of signing a player like Cech and how much of a difference the keeper can make to our team. He believes his experience is huge and will be vital for us when it comes to challenging for more trophies and the Premier League title next year.

“Petr is a very good keeper with massive experience,” he said. “He has a lot of quality and is a complete goalkeeper.”

He continued, “I think [Arsenal can challenge for the Premier League] and I hope so too. We have all the chance to win the Premier League.”

The 29-year-old only signed with us last summer. However, due to injury, he only got the chance to appear for us 15 times – although he did score. He’s since recovered and seems ready to challenge Hector Bellerin for his place in the starting 11.

The right-back previously appeared for Newcastle 46 times (also scoring once) and was one of their stand-out players before he signed with us. Hopefully he can put his injury behind him and integrate back into the squad.
