Petr Cech is proud of how Arsenal responded to their opening-day defeat to West Ham United.
The Czech Republic international had a tough Premier League debut for the club and immediately tweeted afterwards that ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.’
Cech has helped the Gunners climb the table since then and he says a positive mindset is absolutely crucial.
"If you spill the milk or coffee in your kitchen you don’t just let it lay there, you wipe it off and clean it"
“I think if you spill the milk or coffee in your kitchen you don’t just let it lay there, you wipe it off and clean it,” he told Arsenal Player. “It is the same thing when you do something wrong, you just take the first opportunity to make this right and correct it.
“This is the only way. When you know the world well, you are prepared and if a bad game happens it is probably part of football and you need to understand that.
“I had a great pre-season, I was feeling well going into the game, excited to play my first home game. Then obviously the game did not go according to plan for everybody, particularly me.
“But we recovered from there and it was good to see the reaction of the team because it was a big blow as we had wanted to start on a winning note."
