- Cech explained that their opponents were better than them
Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has explained that Tottenham were better than the Gunners after beating Arsenal on Sunday, April 30, 2017 in a Premier League game.
The former Chelsea goalkeeper who was in goal for the Gunners at White Hart Lane expressed his frustration after the defeat which put Arsenal's hope of finishing among the top four in a doubt.
"I feel angry and disappointed because obviously this is not a game we wanted to lose.
"This is a very big disappointment for us. With all the emotions, I have to say that we met a team that was full of confidence, well organised and they are having their best season. I think that showed, that little bit of more confidence and quality on their side.
"We needed to win to keep our Champions League finishing position [hopes] alive and obviously we are very disappointed because it is a north London derby, it means a lot to the fans and it meant a lot to the club, to us. We needed three points and in the end we have none,'' Petr Cech explained.
Arsenal now occupy sixth position on the Premier League standings, but the Gunners have an outstanding game in hand.
