Cech: "We are on the right way to improve."

Petr Cech wasn't happy with how Arsenal fell to Chelsea over the weekend, but he is "pretty positive" they are on the "right way to improve".

Pedro and Alvaro Morata helped the Blues take the lead before Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi levelled for the Gunners in the first half, however, a late Marcos Alonso strike sealed the win for Maurizio Sarri's side at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Cech said as arsenal.com reported: "Well, it was a great game for the fans and everybody watching because, there were so many chances.

Former United star defends Emery.

"We went 2-0 down pretty quickly and had chances that we didn’t score in the first-half, but we came back and then we should have been up at half-time because we had another two really good chances to go ahead.

"But unfortunately we didn’t score the goals to go ahead and in the second half it continued in a similar fashion. But they put us under a little bit more pressure.

"Before the third goal I thought that we coped with it very well and I was positive that we were going to get something out of the game – at least a point."

On a difficult start to the new season, he said: "It’s not been easy, but sometimes that’s the way it is and you learn the hard way. We improved again from the last game, so having seen the work that we put in everyday and the way that the team response to things we do, I’m pretty positive we are on the right way to improve."

We didn’t defend very well, says Papastathopoulos.
