Emery hails Cech as Arsenal keeper frustrates Everton

A first clean sheet.

The Gabon global also saluted Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech's display, and stated his belief that his team were on the rise.

Thankfully we didn't miss the 30-year-old as second half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed a 2-0 win to make it four Premier League wins on the bounce and five in all competitions.

The result means that Silva has started his Blues reign with just one win from six in the Premier League but he will have taken heart from a spirited display that was undone by a lack of quality up front.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery continues to trust in Petr Cech in goal, while at the back he selects Sokratis and Shkodran Mustafi as the central pairing.

Walcott is set to be reunited with the Gunners again on Sunday when Everton head to the Emirates.

"When you start the pre-season, you have 25 players and you need passion with every player, and above all with the young players or the new players", Emery told reporters.

"They lost against West Ham and they want to show us, to show their supporters, that they can win here".

Klopp said: "He was rested at the weekend so he will be 100 per cent fresh for us and we will see the full Neymar package". We don't need to be the favourite to win the game or the outsider to win the game.

Aaron Rodgers: One Day At A Time
Aaron Rodgers told the media he has a sprained knee and that it's been "pretty sore the last three days". He said after the game that while he had to undergo more tests, he planned on playing against Minnesota.

Worst still, his last away win in English football dates back almost a year ago to November 2017 - he's now winless in eight - while the only teams he's ever beaten are Newcastle, Swansea, Southampton and Bournemouth, which hardly gives Everton fans confidence that they can start beating the big teams away from Goodison Park. Before that, it was his shot-stopping that really saved Arsenal.

Theo Walcott, back at Arsenal for the first time since being sold to Everton in January, also drew a good block from the goalkeeper after being played in for a one-on-one, and Arsenal was arguably fortunate to still be level at halftime.

Emery made eight changes for the first European match of his tenure as the likes of Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette dropped out of the starting line-up. The assistant referees can make them.

Usually that means mid-table teams such as Everton or Southampton get an extra day to recover, but this season the spotlight is on two huge clubs that failed to match their ambitions last season and have begun the 2018/19 campaigns with fresh faces in the dugout. "For me, it's unusual".

Indeed, while Emery's signings have looked like half-baked ideas that have fallen by the wayside, Sarri brought in just three notable players - Kepa in goal and midfielders Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic - and has made each a vital member of his team.

A switch to Goodison Park brought a 12-year stint at Emirates Stadium to a close, with the England global having made 397 appearances and scored 108 goals for the Gunners.

Emery's side extended their winning run to four matches in all competitions with a 4-2 victory over Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League on Thursday.
