After Arsenal took on Everton this past weekend, Petr Cech has been talking about the Gunners title chances.
‘Sometimes you need to make sure you win an ugly game’
Cech gave quite an in-depth interview, in which he compared Arsenal to Tiger Woods, Cech stated:
“For any club who wins titles in the recent years, you have a team with the knowhow how to finish it off and you can see it in any sport.
“I take Tiger Woods – five years since he won a major tournament and the longer it goes, the harder it becomes. This club hasn’t won the league for over ten years so obviously you need to get back into knowing how to do it.
“We started with the new manager from scratch basically and we try to get this mentality of winning every game, progressing every game, working every day and hopefully we can build this up and win the title sooner rather than later. That will make the big difference.

“What we lacked in the past… I would say the Arsenal way was more important than getting the points sometimes and this is not sometimes how you win the league.
“Sometimes you need to make sure you win an ugly game. When you are not playing completely well but you just dig deep. Close the back door and win 1-0 no matter how.
“I think this is what we lacked since I arrived (at Arsenal), over the last three years. Yesterday we showed, going through difficult moments in the game, we managed to get the win with the clean sheet so this is very positive.”
Arsenal’s win streak
Arsenal did not have the best start under Unai Emery.
The Gunners lost their opening Premier League fixture 2-0 to Manchester City.
They would then be beaten 3-2 by Chelsea.
Since then however, Arsenal have been in good form.
Emery picked up his first win as Arsenal boss as they beat West Ham 3-1.
Arsenal would then beat Newcastle and Cardiff 2-1 and 3-2.
The Gunners also got off to a winning start in the Europa League picking up a 4-2 vs Vorskla Poltava.
Arsenal’s most recent game vs Everton saw them win 2-0 extending their win streak to five and also gave them their first clean sheet of the season.
