Petr Cech believes that Arsenal’s run of seven undefeated games since getting thrashed 4-0 at Anfield has managed to win Gooners over.
Cech believes that the Gunners’ recent form has helped bring Arsenal fans back on side after a nightmare start to the season.
“We said after the Liverpool game that the only way to bring everybody back on board was to work hard and show our attitude and work ethic through our results and performances,” said the 35-year-old, reports Arsenal.com.
“We’ve been doing so, especially at home. We feel like we’ve won the fans back to our side, and hopefully we can keep them happy as long as we can.
“Every fan has the right to say if they’re not happy, but as players we lead the way and our fans are supporting us home and away. This is great to see.”
This time last month Arsenal fans weren’t feeling much warmth towards their team. The Gunners had just lost embarrassingly to Liverpool and then done nothing other than sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Jurgen Klopp on Transfer Deadline Day. However, since then, the team has put together a run of seven unbeaten games, winning six and keeping five clean sheets.
Arsenal still have a lot of work to do. While they have kept five clean sheets since losing to Liverpool, they’ve still looked vulnerable on the break and simple mistakes are still being made, especially in defence.
However, there’s a foundation there to work on and Arsenal have gone from 12th in the Premier League table to fifth in a week.
During the Gunners’ 2-0 win at home to Brighton on Sunday, Cech only had to make one save in the 55th minute. This is compared to the six that the Seagulls’ Mat Ryan had to make.
Attack-wise Arsenal are looking pretty bloomin’ impressive. They had a whopping 25 shots (12 on target) against Chris Hughton’s side to their nine (one on target), which explains why Cech had so little to do.
