Petr Cech has lamented Tuesday’s 3-1 defeat to Swansea City and claimed that it is the same type of match again and again (via Arsenal.com).
Despite the optimism of the last few weeks, Arsenal fans fell swiftly back down to earth last night with the 3-1 defeat to Swansea City.
The Gunners surrendered a 1-0 lead to the Premier League’s bottom side as defensive errors ruined the night.
One of those errors came, unfortunately, from Petr Cech and the former Chelsea man spoke about the team’s performance after the match.
“Well, they defended well and we simply made mistakes,” Cech said bluntly.

“When you keep making mistakes then obviously at this level the team can take advantage of that and I thought that going 1-0 up was a big breakthrough for us.
“In the second half I obviously made a mistake for the second goal and then we made a mistake for the third goal.
“We are aware that the position in the table that we are in, is thanks to the away form. It’s as simple as that.
“At home we are strong and we are getting points and we take advantage of playing at home. But for some reason away from home it is not happening for us.
“You can see it is not once or twice, it is the same type of game too many times this year. We try to find the solution, but obviously, we haven’t found it.”
Petr Cech was clearly furious both with his and the team’s performance in the aftermath of the match last night. The Czech stopper made a horrible error but can’t bear too much blame for the team’s performance.
