Get a load of the best jokes and memes that Twitter had to offer in response to the Petr Čech saves that earned Arsenal a point against Liverpool.

A £10m summer signing from Chelsea, Čech attracted derision for his erratic performance in the Gunners’ 0-2 opening day defeat at home to West Ham.

He began to make amens last night with a couple of stunning first-half saves, first smothering a close-range effort from Christian Benteke, before somehow tipping Philippe Coutinho’s curling effort onto the post.

Suffice it to say, those Petr Čech saves forced many a critic to eat their words, as well as provide the basis for the following jokes and memes…

In an attempt to get past Cech, Liverpool will play the second half in West Ham kit. #ARSLIV
