Arsenal may only have one point from their opening two games in the Premier League, but they were playing with a severely weakened team and were facing two very talented teams. Our opponents will still have those difficult fixtures in front of them and we still have another 36 games to go in the title race, or so our Number One Petr Cech assures us.
The 34year-old was speaking to Goal after the announcement of his new contract with PUMA and he told them: “It’s been a slow start from us. We wanted to have as many points as possible from the first two opening games but we only have one point.
“We are improving and we keep working as there’s still 36 games to be played, we have plenty of points to win and we work towards our targets which are to play for the title and make sure we have a chance in every competition.”
His message to the Arsenal fans was to tell them not to worry. “We have to thank them for the support, like every year. We keep working to improve and we will go for the title.”
It is a fact that absolutely nobody has ever lost the title after just two games, and if anything Arsenal have a long record of bouncing back from adversity and making up lost ground (don’t we lose our first game every year lol!), so let’s see how we get on in the coming weeks as we move up the table to join the Big Boys in the title race…..
