Unai Emery on whether Petr Cech will start against Chelsea

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has hinted that Petr Cech may or may not start against Chelsea in the Europa League final in Baku on Wednesday night. 

The experienced goalkeeper has been linked with a move back to Stamford Bridge as a director after the final and a debate has ensued over whether he should start in goal for the Gunners or not. 

"I respect him a lot, his career is amazing," Emery told reporters in his pre-match news conference in Baku. 

"First, as a person. Second, as a pro goalkeeper. He deserves to trust in him, not because he stays with us but because of his career."

The Spaniard has called upon Arsenal supporters close to Azerbaijan to build up the atmosphere with a few travelling from London.
