Wenger - Cech was absolutely superb

Arsène Wenger has hailed Petr Cech's man-of-the-match performance in Monday's goalless draw against Liverpool.

The goalkeeper was in superb form at Emirates Stadium, making two stunning first-half saves to deny Christian Benteke and then Philippe Coutinho.

Those stops ensured Cech kept a first Premier League clean sheet for the club, and Wenger says he deserves "big credit".

"At the end of the day I think we come out of the game with the frustration of not having scored"

"He was superb," the manager told Arsenal Player. "In the moments where we struggled he kept us in the game and he deserves a lot of credit for that.

"If you ask me, ‘Did Liverpool play well?’ I would say yes. Did we play well in the first half? I would say no.

"At the end of the day I think we come out of the game with the frustration of not having scored.

"You could see that the West Ham game was a bit in the system, especially at the start of the game.

"It’s a rule in football that if you cannot win the game, you don’t lose it. That’s what we did.

"We had enough chances to win it but it’s a big-club game and you can finish with a draw."

Monday's match was the fifth time that Arsenal have failed to score in their last six Premier League home matches but Wenger is confident that run will not last.

"I’m not especially worried because I know we can score goals," he said. "I cannot say as well that when the numbers go against you it’s not a problem.

"We have to sort it out but usually we score goals at home. I think that will come back."
