Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has backed Petr Cech to prove the doubters wrong after a shaky start to his Gunners career and reminded many that the 33-year-old has the experience to overcome anything, The Evening Standard reports.
Cech produced a more solid display against Crystal Palace and Mertesacker believes that our summer singing’s influence goes deeper than what the viewers are exposed to.
Mertesacker has hailed Cech’s communication during the games and claims that our defensive cohesion can be the foundation to a sustained title challenge.

“My feeling is he comes back even stronger, so there is no doubt he will be a great addition for us,” our vice-captain was quoted as saying.
“Petr is very experienced. You can feel that, he has lots of things to say and in the dressing room he gives us a great lift.
“The interaction between the goalkeeper and the back four has to be top to compete in the Premier League.”
Considering that Cech has seen almost everything in football, his latest mishaps are nothing short of a blip and he’ll back to his best soon.
In him, Mertesacker, and Koscielny, the trio need to establish a chemistry and lead us towards a title challenge; starting by keeping our first clean sheet of the season.
With Liverpool next up, the players will need to be focused on our defensive duties.
