Arsenal star Petr Cech made it clear that he wholeheartedly believes that we posses the qualities to challenge for the Premier Legaue despite our stuttering start to the season.
Liverpool came to the Emirates Stadium on Monday night and nullified all our threats, meaning that we’ve now been unable to score at home in five of our last six league games.
Had it not been for Cech’s heroics, we may well have been looking at back-to-back home defeats this season and the 33-year-old was questioned after the game by Sky Sports about our title credentials.

“I believe,” Cech told the Monday Night Football studio.
“Obviously we didn’t have the start we would like to have, but I still believe we have a bunch of players with a lot of quality.

“I believe this team as the potential to do well.”
Given that Cech knows exactly what it takes to win a Premier League title, surely he sees the obvious flaws in our squad that have been prominent for a number of years.
The lack of a recognised goalscorer to lead the line, one who can fashion a chance and bail us out of a tight game. Also, the lack of power in our midfield is an obvious issue, a quality so important in the Premier League when playing against teams who aim to stop you from playing.
Already, three weeks into the season, our title challenge looks bleak and after a serene summer of preparations, it’s deeply frustrating.
