‘Time to drop him from the team!’ – Fans are bashing this Arsenal star after Leicester game
After watching the team concede three goals in the first game of the season, several Arsenal fans have expressed their frustration towards certain members of the defence.
The Gunners appeared to be heading for a comfortable first day of the new campaign as Alexandre Lacazette headed home the opening goal less than two minutes after kick-off.
However, Arsenal’s woes from previous seasons returned just moments later as a defensive collapse saw Shinji Okazaki level the score for the away side.
Arsene Wenger’s men dug themselves into more trouble as Jamie Vardy went on to bag a brace which did no damage to the result, thanks to strikes from Danny Welbeck, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud.
Even so, the fans chose not to forgive the man in goal, Petr Cech, who was deemed culpable for at least one of the goals Arsenal conceded on Friday.
Here were their tweets…
I'd rather have Jens Lehmann back in goal than Petr Cech. So so so poor.

We bashed Almunia for similar performances. Cech hasn't been consistent. Time to drop him from the team!

Only long term concern I have is how shit Petr Cech is. Would genuinely prefer to start Ospina, can't believe we're letting Woijech go.

Not sure how anyone can forgive Wenger for selling Woj when they see a 35 year old Petr Cech perform like he does.

And from Chelsea fans…
With every passing game at Arsenal, Petr Cech becomes an even bigger Chelsea legend

Respect to Petr Cech. He could have chosen to wind down his career in the MLS but decided to weaken a rival. Legend
