Petr Cech was honoured before the game against Newcastle for breaking the cleansheets record and then promptly grabbed another one as well as the MOTM award.

Arsenal can consider themselves very fortunate to have collected all the points against Steve McLaren’s men in the first game of 2016 and the outfield players all owe Cech a massive debt of gratitude for the saves he made during the game.

When he signed from Chelsea, John Terry said that he was worth around 12 points to Arsenal. He lied. He’s worth so much more.
