You May Have Missed Petr Cech's Bizarre Goalkeeper Gloves Over The Weekend

Arsenal stopper Petr Cech was sporting some rather interesting pair of gloves over the weekend but the new design couldn't prevent him from conceding three goals against Liverpool.

Cech was sporting a pair of £120 Puma gloves which go halfway up his arm in the Premier League defeat as they slumped to fifth in the league - with Alexis Sanchez's role on the bench garnering plenty of attention.

As well as Cech's gloves that extend beyond the wrist. The Czech International was also wearing the gloves during training this morning as Arsenal host Bayern Munich in the second round of their Champions League last round of 16 tie tomorrow night.

The Gunners trail the reigning German champions 5-1 from the first leg.

Here's Cech with David Ospina:

According to Pro Direct Soccer, "For the first time ever, PUMA utilise their world-renowned disc closure system on a goalkeeper glove: this is the PUMA evoDISC."
