CECH INSISTS ARSENAL ARE FINE FOR THE NEW CAMPAIGN
Arsenal No. 1 Petr Cech insists the club is fine despite early stumbles into the new campaign. Arsenal started on a not-so-good note, losing to Liverpool 4-3 despite going one up first.
They returned to pick a point when they played last season winners Leicester City who beat them to the Premier League title. Arsenal got their first win after their third game against Watford. Watford record signing Roberto Pereyra scored for Watford to see the score line at 3-1 at the end of the encounter.
“We scored three goals, and we should have scored more goals. We could have scored in the second half, and they were 3-0 down. They are a good Premier League side so they pushed for something to happen,” Cech lectured. He admitted that their formation put Arsenal under pressure, but they remained resolute to get their first three points of the season.
Cech remains hopeful that many good things can still happen this term. “We have 35 more games to play. Like everybody else, we are going to fight to win every game to be in the mix until the last kick. Last season it wasn’t easy,” he said. After the loss to Liverpool, Cech crashed his crashed his car at the Emirates car park, but only just admitted to it.
Arsenal named new signings Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez in the season’s list after the transfer window closed. So they are expected to join the campaign as soon as possible to help the side move on from the early season stumble. Arsenal play Southampton next in the English Premier League, and the visitors would not come joking as clubs rush to get settle in good spots as the season wears on. Cech says the season has just started, and that the team wants “to challenge at the top of the Premier League.”
