Petr Cech has already developed a bit of a cult status at Arsenal, despite the fact that the 33-year-old is yet to make his Premier League debut.
Fans are clearly smitten with our solitary summer signing, and have even given the former Chelsea man his own chant.
Check out the chant below:

The fans in the video can be heard shouting: “Petr Cech is magic, he wears a magic hat, he used to play for Chelsea – but said f**k off to that.”
In the few brief glimpses we’ve been given of Cech he has certainly impressed. The Czech international has won three trophies in three games, with our win over his former club Chelsea in the Community Shield adding to the Barclays Asia trophy and the Emirates Cup already won in pre-season.
We had two quality shot-stoppers on our books in Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina, but Cech is unquestionably a cut above. He looks likely to give us a massive boost this season, and will make us infinitely more stable at the back.
His experience will also prove invaluable, and the winning mentality he has can be instilled in the rest of the side.
