Arsenal fans, hello and welcome back.

It’s been a short while since our last round-up - the call of the Christmas break was simply too much for some - but we’ve returned just in time to get the show on the road for the new year.

On the eve of the January transfer window, there’s much and more to discuss. Watch the video above or read on below for the latest.

Cech on his top three saves

When you’ve played professional football for as long as Petr Cech has it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ve got a record book as thick as the Lord of the Rings detailing your various exploits.

Well, the Arsenal stopper has now revealed - as per the Daily Mirror - the three saves he considers the best from his entire career.

Yes, he’s got plenty to choose from, but a save from a point-blank Robbie Keane header in 2004 ranks in at number three, whilst his reaction stop from Christian Benteke earlier on this season is number two.

Cech saves Benteke effort:

However it’s his Champions League final penalty stop from Arjen Robben in 2012 that ranks as his favourite.

“It was not in the Premier League, of course - but if they score, then you think, ‘We are done, it’s the end’,” he said of the last one.

Let us know your favourite Cech save in the comments box provided.

Henry praises Ozil

Meanwhile, Thierry Henry has hailed the form of Mesut Ozil this season, likening the German to Dennis Bergkamp.

Henry said fans were right to criticise the playmaker before because he wasn’t performing. With 16 Premier League assists this season, it’s fair to say that’s no longer the case.

Szczesny reel

Lastly, Wojciech Szczesny was handed a rare moment in the sun courtesy of loan club AS Roma earlier this week.

The Serie A side released a compilation video of the Pole’s best saves from this season and though he hasn’t been an unerring colossus between the sticks we have to admit, he’s pulled off some pretty good stops.
