Emery hails Cech after Everton clean sheet

Emery confirmed he will give some of his most promising youngsters a chance to play as he rests his Premier League regulars, which could mean a first career start for teenage midfielder Emile Smith-Rowe.

Having survived Everton's opening salvo, the Gunners clinched their fourth successive Premier League victory thanks to second half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Some pundits had questioned whether Cech could adapt to Emery's style of playing out from the back, but the Arsenal coach has no doubts.

Arsenal were poor in the first half and were it not for Cech, who made a string of excellent saves, they would have been behind. "But Bernd Leno is a young goalkeeper and he has a big future here". "It was the whole team that defended and then we attacked and at the moment it is a little bit disjointed". I think this is what we lacked over the last three years, since I arrived in 2015.

This is not how you win the league.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has surprised many this season by pairing Aubameyang and Lacazette up front for his side this season.

Packers, Redskins both looking for offense
The Packers are not concerned about Rodgers' mobility after he appeared improved both laterally and moving forward in Week 2. Over the next seven plays, he drew pass interference calls on Packers defenders to move down to the Green Bay 2-yard line.

Currently, Arsenal sit one point off of Champions League spot level on points with bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur and two points ahead of vaunted nemesis Manchester United.

"VAR would help but I understand they are trying to find the best way to introduce it maybe by next season".

After a quiet first half, France internatinal Lacazette fired Arsenal into the lead with a curling strike from just inside the box. The other goalkeepers are the same, very well, and need to continue working for when the team needs.

"It is a disappointing result for us". It started in the first minute with a one v one against Petr Cech.

Emery revealed he is going to use the third-round clash as an opportunity to give players, who have not had many minutes so far in the campaign, a chance to gain valuable match experience.

Everton can justifiably complain about the second goal, with Aubameyang clearly in an offside position when receiving the ball from Ramsey's flick at the end of a counterattack.
