Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has been named in the WhoScored? Premier League Team of the Week after his impressive display against Sunderland on Sunday afternoon.

Cech once again started in-between the sticks as we went looking for the win that would see us climb above Manchester City and reclaim third spot in the table.

Unfortunately, we put in another lethargic performance that lacked any real desire to get all three points and this led to Cech being called in to action more than he perhaps should have been.

The Czech international made 6 saves during the ninety minutes, including two excellent stops shortly after half-time, as relegation-threatened Sunderland pushed for the winner.

In the end, the game finished 0-0 but Cech’s impressive display in goal has earned him a rating of 7.6 which was the highest of any keeper in the league this past weekend, so he’s been named in the WhoScored? TOTW.

Laurent Koscielny came close to joining Cech in the side but he narrowly missed out with his rating of 7.83 falling just short of the 7.86 amassed by Sunderland defender Lamine Kone.

No attacking player got close to making the line-up as we were pretty awful at the weekend.
