Chelsea and Arsenal fans on Twitter have been reacting to Petr Cech’s performance for the Gunners against his former club in the Community Shield.
After 11 years at Stamford Bridge, it was ironic that Cech’s competitive debut for his new team should come against Chelsea.
Blues fans seemed to agree that Cech’s summer move can only benefit Arsenal, while former Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot also praised the goalkeeper.

Arsenal fans were equally excited by Cech’s showing, with several describing the 33-year-old Champions League-winner as “world class”.

Petr Cech looks like he’s made that Arsenal defence better already. Organised, committed they know they’ve a world class keeper behind them — David Turner (@dcturner71) August 2, 2015
Many Chelsea fans were also angry that their respect for Cech was not mirrored by Arsenal supporters when it came to ex-Gunner Cesc Fabregas.

HUGE difference in the way we greeted Cech & gooners greeted Fabregas. No class, those gooners. #CFC
