Could this Premier League record holder spur Arsenal onto the league title?

Arsenal signed Petr Cech from Chelsea this summer, and he is proving key in his new side’s bid for a first league title in a decade.

The Gunners kept a total of 11 clean sheets last term, which has already been surpassed by the Czech international.

Arsenal finished 12 points behind last season’s winners Chelsea, but they have fallen apart like a cheap pair of socks, leaving them in the bottom half of the table at present.

The North-London side only finished four points behind Manchester City who occupied second, and Cech has no doubt earned his side at least that many points since joining in pre-season.

Arsenal are of course above their main challengers from last term, and now sit in behind the high-flying duo of Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

The two clubs lack a huge number of experienced players when it comes to title charges however, and many still claim neither will have what it takes as the going gets tough.

Leicester have Robert Huth and Mark Schwarzer in their squad, who can both boast league titles with Chelsea, although the latter is not the Foxes first choice, and neither was he when winning last year’s title with the Blues.

Tottenham will be calling on the experience of Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen, who can boast nine top Spanish and Dutch top division titles between them.
