In days past Thibaut Courtois would’ve had Petr Cech ready to take his place. Not anymore.
Arsenal fans were pretty excited to land Chelsea legend Petr Cech this summer as their new starting goalkeeper. So naturally, the Gooners were absolutely ecstatic to see Cech’s replacement get a red card.
Taking to Twitter, the Arsenal fans quickly trolled the Blues and Courtois for giving up Cech – who has the second highest number of clean sheets in Premier League history – and sending him to the loving arms of Arsene Wenger at Emirates Stadium.
#CHESWA no problem giving courtois red card, we still have cech on bench…oh wait!

As happy as the Gooners were to see Courtois get sent off, they were undoubtedly even more elated to see their bitter London rivals suffer a draw against Swansea City.

Blues fans were absolutely livid:
3 match ban for Courtois. Mourinho might blame Wenger for that.

Felt like a boss while taking Courtois in my FPL team. Now I’m just going have to pay for it. BAH — Ishwar Venkatesh (@Ish_MUFC) August 8, 2015
