Petr Cech has always been touted as a great presence behind the back four, one which makes everybody more confident in their game but he has now revealed himself to be an optimist with his latest social media post.
After Sundays disappointing 1-0 loss to Chelsea, Arsenal fans were beginning to get morose and negative about their chances of lifting the title this season. The match saw Per Mertesacker, of all people, sent off and Arsenal conceded a goal within minutes. The game remained goalless after that with Arsenal’s 10 men coping well to not concede again.
As illustrated in his tweet after the game, Petr Cech obviously only looks at the positives. The tweet spoke positively of the teams effort and attitude, which will bring some calm about the matter.
Disappointed with the result… Great team effort and attitude down to 10 men … plenty of points to play for ! Let’s keep going! #COYG

Having won the Premier League multiple times with Chelsea, the Czech international knows about the ins and outs of the English title race better than any of the current Arsenal squad and this experience is showing through. Off the pitch gestures like this show his innate class and they help to spread positive vibes and support after a disappointing and potentially damaging result.
Petr Cech will certainly look to keep a clean sheet in the next game but unfortunately will have to wait until next season to keep one against his former employers.
It’s important to consider Petr’s words and not let this one defeat derail our most promising campaign in years. Cech is positive not because he is naive, but because he knows that title winners can drop points but need the faith of their support behind them to help them bounce back. Arsenal fans should look to be the rock solid base for the team to win the title on.
