Team captain Cech is one of the best shot-stoppers of the past couple decades, but Emery expects more than that.

Unai Emery may have got off to a hard start to life at Arsenal, following defeats to Man City and Chelsea, but the Spaniard's methods are now starting to reap the rewards after the Gunners recorded their fifth consecutive win on the spin in all competitions.

Against Everton, coach Unai Emery made a decision to bench French youngster Matteo Guendouzi, who has performed well so far this season, and handed Uruguayan Lucas Torreira, another summer arrival, his first starting for Arsenal in the English Premier League.

"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.

He said: 'In the end, one goal was enough to win the game against Everton, and when you score a superb goal like Alexandre Lacazette's one for Arsenal, you are entitled to celebrate.
