Cech: Arsenal must take the positives out of Man United defeat

Arsenal lost to Manchester United yesterday, despite dominating much of the match at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners had over 30 shots on goal, with David De Gea racking up 14 saves on what has to have been his best performance between the sticks and we must now take some positives out of our defeat.

Petr Cech claims that the game was lost by our early mistakes and must learn to be better concentrated in the future, whilst adding that he is disappointed in the result especially when considering how much of the game was dominated by themselves.

He said: “The game was decided at the start with our two mistakes and they scored.

“We need to make sure that when we create chances in a big game we score and don’t make mistakes.

“There are not many times you play United and you dominate the whole game, having so many chances, so this is positive, but we are disappointed.

“We played against Huddersfield and we were on the other side of it (winning 5-0 last Wednesday).

“We had a spell where we had four shots and everything went in, this time it was the opposite.”

Scoring only once from over 30 shots on goal is highly frustrating especially when you consider they managed three goals from under 10, but we can’t let the result affect our confidence in the busy run up to Christmas.

We have tough trips to Southampton and West Ham coming up in the Premier League and although neither is enjoying their best season, will still pose problems for us if we are not at our best.

Would we have won if we had survived the opening 15 minutes at 0-0? Can we take positives out of the defeat?

    The only major positive is that Wenger is edging closer to the end of his contract (although he’ll probably get another one), and then hopefully we can get a top manager in like Simeone (who works with a smaller budget than Wenger), who can teach our players how to defend.

    Cech conceded another easy goal yesterday. This time between his legs.

    Shame other teams are not that bad at finishing that they dont make our GK look world class.

      My missus said if those balls were between her legs she would have did more ..

      Which is weird because she never usually comments on the games except for Giroud

    Nothing much Cech can do.Maybe some of the players are not up to the occasion. Wondering how the pre match teamtalk before big games was? Both united early goals aŕe because the defenders being too casual imo

    I can’t remember any save he made yesterday. I really can’t. He as well as Mustafi, Kos and Alexis had a bad game yesterday. Alexis lost the ball 30 plus times that is so terrible. The two errors leading to goals wasn’t really the reason we lost yesterday. We lost because Manu has de gea and we have cech. l don’t know if I’m too harsh on him but i think he should have saved their first goal.

    I said last week that Cech was past he’s sell by date, I think yesterday’s performance summed it up. Not saying the defeat was down to him but when was the last time you see him make world class save.

    Reading Cech’s comment she has been like a revelation – I would never have thought taking your chances along with not making defensive mistakes was the key to winning games. This truly has been an education
