Arsenal’s Petr Cech believes he was lucky to get away with Cardiff mistakes

Arsenal vs Cardiff

Arsenal took on Cardiff in their latest Premier League clash as they went in search of a second straight win.

Shkodran Mustafi would open the scoring for Arsenal inside just 11 minutes.

However, Victor Camarasa would draw Cardiff City level on the stroke of half-time.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then regained Arsenal the lead before Danny Ward brought Cardiff level once again.

However, Alexandre Lacazette would once again give Arsenal the lead and this time they would stay in front, winning 3-2.

One of the bigger talking points in the game though was Petr Cech.

Cech is required to use his feet a lot more under new boss Unai Emery and the veteran keeper is struggling a bit.

Cech gave the ball away with his passing a number of times against Cardiff and nearly cost Arsenal a goal.

‘We got away with it at Cardiff but I think my overall game has been strong’

The Arsenal keeper has since spoken out about his displays under Unai Emery.

Cech told Sky Sports:

“Everyone picked up on two passes against Manchester City and Cardiff.

“Obviously, from that number of passes you can make a mistake. I try not to make a mistake. T hat’s clear and obvious.

“You want to use the goalkeeper as an advantage as a spare man. I am not happy with these two passes. We got away with it at Cardiff but I think my overall game has been strong.

“If the team wins and from your mistake nothing happens it’s a good way to realise you have to be more precise next time.

“I’m lucky nothing bad happened. I know that everyone will be waiting for the next mistake and trying to put more pressure but that’s the way it goes. Playing in goal in the Premier League you play with lots of pressure.”
