Iwobi Stars, Cech Keeps 200th Clean Sheet As Arsenal Stay Sixth

Iwobi Stars, Cech Keeps 200th Clean Sheet As Arsenal Stay Sixth

Following the Gunners' 3-0 victory, Bellerin, who's out with a knee injury, returned fire by posting a savage Tweet.

After the match, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said: "Two-hundred clean sheets is of course remarkable". If you are going to make statements such as those, however fun, you really have to demonstrate the size of your own by sticking in a spot kick that could've got his side back in the game.

"It's an unbelievable personal milestone obviously", Cech said.

"We had a massive game in Milan and we managed to win there with a clean sheet".

Arsenal lost 3-0 to Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley following an underwhelming performance last month.

It was a strong start from Arsenal and they were quick out of the trap, pressing forward and taking an early lead thanks to a eighth-minute goal from Shkodran Mustafi, assisted by Mesut Ozil.

Cech had to make his first save to deny Abdoulaye Doucoure, as Arsenal's defence went to sleep, but the better chances fell on the other end, where Aubameyang nearly doubled the lead.

Ozil had an equally good chance moments later as he glided into the penalty area before Karnezis made another fine save with his legs.

Arsenal increased their lead 14 minutes into the second half as Aubemayang scored with a left-footed shot from an assist by Mkhitaryan.

Just minutes after the goal, Ainsley Maitland-Niles brought down Pereyra inside the box, giving away a penalty.

Petr Cech (Arsenal): It's been a tough time for the keeper, who was forced to accept some responsibility after a awful result last weekend against Brighton.

We knew we're on a hard run at the moment, we had to look at ourselves and we had a big result in midweek in Milan and I felt we carried the determination into today.

Mustafi's goal, which came eight minutes into the game, was Arsenal's 1,000th in the Premier League.
