Petr Cech was brutally honest about Arsenal’s dismal BATE display

Arsenal suffered a shock 1-0 defeat in the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie.

Goalkeeper Peter Cech gave a brutally honest assessment of their performance after watching his teammates fail to hit the back of the net.

“It was one of those games where if we played for another couple of hours probably we wouldn’t have scored. But there are games in football like that,” he said.

“You try, you play, the goal does not arrive and you have to go home with the result you don’t want but you have to pick yourself up and be ready for the second leg. This is the advantage of playing two-legged ties – when one game goes wrong you can always make up for it.”
