Chelsea sold their long-serving goalkeeper Petr Cech to Arsenal last summer. The Czech goalkeeper had fallen behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and wanted a move to the North London club.
He was granted his wish by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich due to his cordial relationship with the Blues. Cech seems to have settled quite well at the Emirates Stadium, while at the same time, Courtois has suffered from a drop in his form.
Following the Belgian’s performance in the draw against West Ham, many Chelsea fans were seen on Twitter fondly remembering their former goalkeeper.
Courtois beaten over his head for the umpteenth time. Footwork useless. So frustrating how much he has regressed without Cech competition.
