Arsenal have one of their most significant challenges of the season with their opening game against Manchester City at the Emirates on Sunday to kick-start the Unai Emery era.
"We played a high level considering the lack of physical condition for numerous players who arrived back late after the World Cup. We needed that guy in that position, and he did it so well apart from in the last 25 minutes when he started to get exhausted".
Here is how you can catch all the action of this first big Premier League match of the season.
"I 100 per cent want to be one of the best in the world, but I know it will take time and hard work on and off the pitch". From moving from Monaco to City, to suffering an ACL rupture, to winning both the Premier League and the World Cup, it certainly has been a whirlwind 12 months for the Frenchman.
I believe the signings we have made are of huge potential, and that we have massively strengthened our attacking options, which quite clearly indicates the way in which Manuel Pellegrini wants his West Ham side to play.
It took a double save from Cech to keep Arsenal in the match, first saving a Riyad Mahrez free kick and then deflecting Aymeric Laporte's follow up out for a corner.
"Even when you are flawless, the other team can be better".
"I think going away to the Emirates is always so complicated".
Emery was also asked his view on Cech after the 46-year-old Gunners boss opted for the former Chelsea goalkeeper to start ahead of summer signing Bernd Leno.
Sam Allardyce had his say on the result this morning on talkSport, claiming that the result is Emery's fault due to being insistent on his team playing out from the back against Man City. "He is working very well, he played well in pre-season too, but he has to wait for his chance to arrive". "But to win the way we won is more than a compliment to our team and staff". Later today, we face West Ham who could give us problems as they will be looking for something to prove after a lacklustre season last time out.
"Forget about Liverpool's spending, because of course they have spent a lot, but last season they were a top team as well".
