‘Bin him now please’ – Arsenal fans livid after horrendous Cech howler

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech will want to forget about this moment as quick as possible as his howler gifted Swansea City a goal on Tuesday night.

Based on the comments below, it’s fair to say that these Arsenal fans were far from impressed with Cech, and it could prove costly given it handed Swansea the lead in a game in which the Gunners had opened the scoring.

From the highs of bringing on Henrikh Mkhitaryan for his Arsenal debut to conceding this goal just moments later, it’s quite the game for the visitors at Swansea…
