Unai Emery sends message to fans after Petr Cech mistake

Unai Emery sends message to fans after Petr Cech mistake

Those two defeats, against champions Manchester City and Chelsea, came with the team looking low on confidence. "I have many good memories, so I miss them".

Both players are nursing hamstring injuries, but will be checked prior to the cup match and may be in line for a return against the midtable League One side.

And he has confirmed that Petr Cech will start in goal, ahead of Bernd Leno.

Cech, who started the season as Emery's first-choice goalkeeper, has not featured since limping out of Arsenal's victory over Watford at the end of September.

The 21-year-old scored in north London as he headed home a corner in the 66th minute to haul the visitors back into the tie after Stephan Lichtsteiner and Emile Smith Rowe had put Unai Emery's men 2-0 up before Matteo Guendouzi saw red after half-time.

"In each moment for each match, we are going to give the goalkeepers the opportunity to help us", Emery said. "They have a chance - but at the moment we have some other teams who look very strong as well".

Arsenal got back to winning ways after beating Blackpool 2-1 at the Emirates in the Carabao Cup.

It was Leno who played in the last round of the Carabao Cup against Brentford, while the 26-year-old German worldwide has also been Arsenal's Europa League goalkeeper this season.

All of the matches will be played during the week of December 17. "It was hard enough to get the ball off them when they had 10 and we had 11".

Arsenal have told Aaron Ramsey he won't be getting a new contract offer, meaning the midfielder is set to leave the club for free next summer, a source has told ESPN FC.
