This season has been an unremarkable one for Arsenal as they were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League after failing to reach the quarter-finals and losing to Bayern Munich with a painful aggregate scoreboard of 10-2
Arsenal also recently dropped points after losing against West Bromwich Albion and the relegation threatened club Crystal Palace. This drop of points has forced Arsenal to fall in the English Premier League standings and after 31 matches played, they are currently positioned at the 6th spot with 57 points.
If Arsenal continues to underperform, they might not even be able to secure a UEFA Champions League qualification spot for the upcoming season.
Petr Cech has expressed his thoughts concerning the current situation of Arsenal and revealed details involving the English Premier League club as the Czech goal-keeper said:
‘’We have no problems during preparations or in training. The issue is taking it all to matches. That’s the worst part. When things don’t go well in training, you can work on that, make it right, but this is not the case Our levels of performance in matches are not near what this team can do, what it should be doing’’
“We’ve lost too many points and our rivals took advantage of that. We need to start winning to qualify for the Champions League. If we aren’t be in it, it wouldn’t be appropriate. It’s not just the coach who is responsible, but the players as well. We still have time to recover, but it’s running out quick. We need to win straight away; the team has the experience to turn this situation around.”
There are more than enough Premier League matches left in this season for Arsenal to make a comeback and climb into the higher section of the top tier English competition which can help to salvage what has been happening in this season.
