Arsenal lost to Watford at the Emirates Stadium last night, and Petr Cech for one is disgusted with their performance.
The Gunners were dominated in the opening half, and within 20 mnutes of the match, found themselves 2-0 down, and on course for an embarrassing defeat. Luckily the Hornets were unable to convert their dominant first-half display into more goals, and the score stayed 2-0 coming into half-time.
Arsenal managed to pull one back early into the second-half, but failed to complete their comeback and lost the match, and Cech has admitted that his side deserved to be trailing.
Petr said: ‘We had a very bad start, I think we didn’t play well at all.
‘We were second best in the first half. We made so many bad passes, we lost every challenge, we were simply second best.
‘I always say that at this level you cannot play 80 minutes, or 85. You have to play 90 minutes with full concentration and everybody on top of their game.’
He did talk up our performance after the interval however, and says the second-half performance deserved a result, but after the display earlier in the match, luck isn’t something they deserved.
He added: ‘In the second half we improved, we had a lot of chances. I thought we were brilliant second half, but obviously we only scored one goal.
‘We had chances but the keeper made some very good saves, we hit the bar and we could say we were unlucky in that way. But for the first-half performance, we actually didn’t deserve a little bit of luck.’
Is Wenger or Bould to blame for the dismal first-half display? Did we deserve a point or more?
