Tony Cascarino claims that Petr Cech could lose his place to a new goalkeeper if he makes mistakes throughout the season.

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has claimed that Petr Cech could be booted from the number one spot at Arsenal.

The former Czech Republic international has been first choice at the Emirates since his 2015 switch from Chelsea.

During Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City, though, the shot-stopper struggled to keep out the visitors at the Emirates.

Cech ended up conceding three times, but he was saved by his team, who eventually won the game 4-3.

Cascarino believes that if the keeper continues to fumble, then manager Arsene Wenger may dip into the January transfer window rather than promote David Ospina.

"I'm not sure that Cech will be number one at Arsenal come the end of season," Cascarino wrote in The Times. "The 35-year-old is nowhere near the level he was and rather than using his experience to compensate for fading ability he looks increasingly shaky in goal.

"He's playing on reputation but I'm not sure Ospina is good enough to replace him. If this becomes a problem Arsene Wenger may have to look at buying a goalkeeper in January."

Arsenal's next match is away against Stoke City on Saturday.
