Petr Cech stated that his Arsenal side are in a great spot to land their first Premier League title in over a decade.
The Gunners limped to a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to neighbours Tottenham Hotspur today, which left them two points behind Liverpool at the head of the table.
Petr Cech has now insisted that his side remain in a strong position to win the English top division, and the form they are in will see them stay in the fight for first as the season wears on.
“If you keep your consistency then you have chance to do it,” Cech told reporters. “We are in a very good position with a lot of games to be played.
“Obviously you need to make sure you compete for every game. If we keep our run going then we will be near the top and will have a chance.”
The former Chelsea shotstopper went onto admit that he was not very happy with today’s result, having failed to win from a leading position, blaming a lack of concentration and rhythm for them taking their foot off the pedal.
Cech added: “We’re disappointed to have only got one point because we were 1-0 up and in a good position at half-time, so it gave us the opportunity to go into the second half and use it to our advantage.
“The early equaliser in the second half changed the momentum of the game. They played with more confidence in the second half and we lost the rhythm a little bit after they equalised.
“We came back into it but we were too late. We are disappointed to have dropped two points.”
Do we still believe we can win this year’s title? How crucial could today’s draw be on our PL hopes?
