first_imgArsenal legend David Seaman has advised Arsene Wenger NOT to launch a bid for Petr Cech.The Gunners are reportedly lining up a £7million swoop for the out-of-favour Chelsea goalkeeper in the January transfer window.But Seaman is against the move as he wants Wenger to keep faith with Wojciech Szczesny.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the club’s legendary former stopper said: “Wojciech is coming off his best season last season with Arsenal and I don’t think that anybody warrants taking his place because he is not making mistakes.“Arsenal are conceding goals, but it is not through goalkeeping errors that they are conceding.”Arsenal have lost more more points from winning positions than any other Premier League side this season, and are sitting sixth in the table ahead of Saturday’s visit of Manchester United.Seaman insists that has little to do with Szczesny and is instead down to a lack of leadership throughout the team.He added: “They have not got anybody in the team at the moment that can grab a game and think, right, we are 2-0 up or 3-0 up, let’s sit in front of the back four, see ten minutes out so we don’t concede a goal, and then push on from there. We used to do that with Patrick Vieira. Tony Adams or I would say, ‘Patrick, just sit in front of the defenders for ten minutes’.“You would think someone like Per Mertesacker would be good enough to do that because he has got tons of international experience. I don’t know how vocal he is in a game or how the other players are, but [Mathieu] Flamini looks like the only one doing it at the moment.”With Arsenal 11 points behind leaders Chelsea just 11 games into the season, Wenger has already given up hope of winning the title.Seaman insists it is too early to completely write off the Gunners, but admits their London rivals look to be on a different level.“They have got a slight chance. Chelsea are looking so good and so strong, but if Arsenal can get on one of their runs where they win a big group of games together then they can put a bit of pressure on,” he said.“At the moment Chelsea are almost in second gear and they have got three more gears to go.”last_img read more
