Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has claimed that Arsenal are not playing to their best abilities at present, but showed great character when falling a goal behind against Southampton.
The Gunners snatched a last-minute win against the Saints on Saturday, with the help of a Santi Cazorla penalty in injury time, having come back to 1-1 before half-time, and scrapping for the win for much of the second half.
Cech is keen to take the positives from the result despite the way that that it finally came, and is also confident that there is much more to come from Arsenal this season.
He said: “I think we are not 100 per cent yet.
“Our game is not as fluent as it could be and it should be. But I think we are getting the results that we need and this is the most important sometimes when you are playing and you know not everything is happening the way you want, that you find a way to win games.
“Obviously we did so, so we are happy with the three points and we go game by game and try to improve every day.
“I think our reaction (to going behind) was very good, we got a goal back in the first half, we tried to push for the winning goal. It came in the last minute but I think we were aggressive and we were searching for it so in the end we probably deserved a little bit of luck back.”
The result was a very important one, and we deserved the win at the end of the day, but Cech is definitely right in that we are not playing our best as of yet.
Were you impressed with the spirit shown to come from behind and win? Will we push on now and get back into the title race?
