Petr Cech’s injury time frame has been confirmed


If Arsene Wenger didn’t have enough problems, he must now face up to being without Petr Cech for some crucial games.

The 34-year-old has been an ever-present in the Gunners’ league campaign this season, but they will now be reliant on back-up David Ospina, with the Sun reporting that Cech is to be sidelined for a month.

The former Czech Republic international suffered a calf injury in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to West Brom at the Hawthorns.

It remains to be seen whether he’ll be back for the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City on April 23.

Before that, Arsenal face City in the league, as well as West Ham, Crystal Palace, and Middlesbrough.


Ospina let in 10 goals in his two recent appearances against Bayern Munich, though he also pulled off some heroics in the first leg.

The Colombian had to come on for Cech at West Brom, and it was then that Arsenal conceded a further two goals.

On the face of it, the Gunners may have little left to play for this season, but they face an uphill battle to get into the Champions League, which will only be more difficult without their first-choice goalkeeper.
