After the English Premier League Side Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat to Everton on Tuesday, the Gunners goalkeeper, Peter Cech has asked his team to get ready for the next big game as he urged them to not dwell on their defeat at Goodison Park.
The Arsene Wenger side, which will be playing Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on December 18, ended their Premier League unbeaten run when Ashley Williams headed home Ross Barkley’s corner in the 86th minute to give Everton the win. Alexis Sanchez’s goal in the 20th minute, which began the scoring apparently wasn’t enough, as Seamus Coleman equalised for Everton in the second half.
“You have to pick yourself up. There is a big period coming up now with the games coming thick and fast and there is no time to dwell on the defeat. You have to move on and get ready for the next one,” Peter Cech, who conceded two goals, said after the game.
“Sometimes I think it is best if after a big game, you play another big game.
“You have opportunities to win, it’s a kind of a six-pointer – it’s probably a perfect game for us.
“We played well with the ball and we didn’t give them chances. Second half, obviously with the goal they came back into the game and in the Premier League it’s very difficult.
“You can’t control games for 90 minutes, there will be moments where the opponents will show their quality.
“Although they were not dangerous for most of the game, they found two goals and in the end you go home with a defeat.”
Arsenal lost for just the second time in the Premier League this season, and are now 6 points adrift leaders Chelsea, and four points clear of third-placed Manchester City. But the Match day 17 game between the two giants on Sunday will decide the compression or expansion of their current points-difference.
