Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has lamented their 4-0 loss to Southampton on Boxing day.
The defeat meant the Gunners failed to go top of the Premier League table after Leicester City fell to Liverpool at Anfield.
However, Cech said they will be ready to bounce back to winning ways when they face Bournemouth on Monday.
“We had a game where nothing was really happening for us and everything was happening for them,” the goalkeeper said, arsenal.com reported. “If you look at the number of shots they had - they had one in the first half and they scored a goal.
“In the second half both goals were practically the same. They had two shots and they put them in. Obviously when you play against a team which has this type of efficiency in front of goal then it is difficult to win games.
“Our performance was not as we wanted but that’s football - especially in the Premier League. When you have a day like that and you don’t find your way it is very difficult to win.
“We made more mistakes and with the possession we had in the second half we didn't seem to find the right passes at the right time. We lacked efficiency. Football is about scoring goals and we couldn’t find our chances today and we got punished for it.
“The positive thing is there is a game on Monday and we will be ready to bounce back.”
