Wojciech Szczesny: "We were simply beaten by a better side on the day."


Gunners goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has said that he has no complaints about their 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.

Goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa handed Mourinho’s side a victory at Stamford Bridge as the Blues maintained their position as the Premier League table toppers.

However, the 24-year-old goalkeeper believes that Wenger's men were crushed by a better side who took their chances on Sunday.

“I thought it was a very even game,” Wojciech Szczesny said. “But Chelsea have an ability to keep clean sheets at home and I thought they were very good, they took their chances with two brilliant moments.

“One, the brilliant run from Hazard that led to the penalty. On the second goal, the ball from Cesc [Fàbregas] and the finish. Sometimes you’ve got to take your hat off to the brilliance of the opposition.

Szczesny continued: “We’ve had a tough run so far. But I’d like to think that our start has been solid, not as good as we expected from ourselves but I believe that, after the international break, we can push on and get more points.

“You can’t say we’ve played badly against Chelsea, it’s just that we’ve come up against a very strong side, probably the favourites to win the Premier League at this point.”
