Wenger was more anxious about playing style than winning: Cech

The 29-year-old was also criticised by pundits following Arsenal's hard start to their 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

Philosophy: Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech and manager Arsene Wenger holding the 2017 Community Shield. It was their fourth Premier League win in succession.

Unai Emery's side rode their luck in the first half at the Emirates Stadium as Everton wasted a host of chances to punish a sloppy opening from the Gunners. He's started the season very well and we think he's giving us the performance we want.

"I would rather have had Macclesfield at home but unfortunately we've got to travel to the Emirates which I'm sure all our supporters will be looking forward to", said Smith. "I take Tiger Woods - 10 years since he won a Major tournament".

Arsenal are adapting to life under Unai Emery and languish in sixth, with the side begging for playmakers such as Ozil to provide the extra quality in the final third and regularly put sides to bed in a bid to get themselves back into the Champions League spots.

"A big thanks to Petr Cech because he took a lot of balls today and we won our first clean sheet", he told Sky Sports.

The north Londoners have now won their last five games in all competitions, yet, not for the first time, this was a far from convincing display. I think this is what we lacked over the last three years, since I arrived in 2015. It has been a tough adjustment period for a player who, at 36, is in the twilight of his career but his faultless display against Everton showed he is getting there.

It leaves Everton, also under a new coach in Marco Silva, with just one win in six games.

Walcott spent 11-and-a-half years at Arsenal having joined from Southampton back in 2006 as a fresh-faced 17-year-old, making 397 appearances for the Gunners. I am of course talking about Dominic Calvert-Lewin's early chance, which was coolly swept away by the long legs of Cech.

Ramsey has been deployed in the No.10 role in recent weeks but has struggled to find his best form with the Welsh worldwide putting in some very average performances against the likes of West Ham, Cardiff City and Newcastle United this month.
