Leno’s wait for his first competitive debut continues as Unai Emery prefer Petr Cech ahead of the German international.

The goalie joined the Gunners from Bayern Leverkusen last summer but things hasn’t gone as planned for the 26-year-old goaltender.

Prior to the start of this campaign, many fans tipped Leno to become the Gunners first-choice goalie due to Cech’s error-prone nature.

Contrary to their thoughts, Unai Emery chose to continue with the Czech International in the first game of the season.

Though Cech almost scored an own-goal against City, the Spanish tactician chose to trust the goalie ahead of the new signing.

In this vein, former Arsenal player David Seaman has advised Leno to keep calm and wait for his time.

According to the Gunners legend, it will be very difficult for Leno to push Cech down the pecking order considering the experience and quality possessed by the former Chelsea goalkeeper.

Seaman believes Cech won’t be dropped to the bench by the gaffer unless the goaltender commits great errors.

Furthermore, Seaman confessed he didn’t expect Leno to break into the starting lineup irrespective of his market value.

Just as Seaman said, Bernd Leno’s time to play his first game for the Gunners is almost near as the North London club would be involved in Europa League competition next week and Cech is expected to be rested by Emery.

“Just because he cost a lot of money does not mean he goes straight into the team.

“He has to be patient. Petr Cech has done nothing wrong in goal. Ok, so he is adjusting to playing with the ball from the box. But he has been able to contribute to the team and has done nothing to cause him to be left out.” Seaman said.
