Seaman backs Cech for No.1 spot.

Petr Cech's immense experience will help him remain as Arsenal's first choice goalkeeper despite the arrival of Bernd Leno, according to David Seaman.

Leno signed for the Gunners last week after seven years with Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen. He made 230 appearances at Leverkusen and has been backed to succeed at the Emirates by his old team-mates.

However, former Arsenal shotstopper Seaman reckons Leno will face strong competition from Cech for the No 1 spot.

"He [Cech] has still got great qualities and it isn't like he has had a bad season or anything, he still produced," Seaman said as reported.

"Obviously he is getting older but your game adapts, that is what I found, you might not be as sharp as what you used to be but your experience gets you into the right positions."
