Petr Cech has the worst ‘errors leading to goals’ record in Europe

Arsenal fans ended the season in joyous moods as they reminisced over the fantastic career of Arsene Wenger who left the club after 22 years.

Wenger’s departure seems to have helped everybody forget just how terrible Arsenal really were this season.

The Gunners finished 6th in the Premier League, their worst finish since 1994/95.

Arsenal were knocked out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle (against Championship side Nottingham Forest), they were torn apart in the League Cup Final against Manchester City and played appallingly as they lost to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi finals.

Petr Cech played 34 Premier League games this season and conceded 48 goals, his worst ever record in England.

 Petr Cech: Committed more errors leading to an opposition goal (6) than any other player in Europe's top 5 leagues this season

Petr Cech made more errors leading to goals than any other goalkeeper in Europe’s Top 5 leagues this season.


The Czech international made some unforgivable errors against Swansea and Everton which will live long in the memory of all Arsenal fans.

Regardless, Arsenal have still given the former Chelsea goalkeeper the vacant number 1 shirt for the upcoming season.

It’s a rather strange decision from the club who clearly need a new goalkeeper.

Cech, who turned 36 on Sunday, clearly doesn’t have a long career ahead of him in North London and based on his displays this term, Arsenal really need a new man in between the posts.

Jack Butland has been linked with a move to the Emirates and it will be exciting to see if Unai Emery wants a new goalkeeper as part of his plans for The Gunners.
