We weren't at our best at Old Trafford on Saturday - and Petr Cech is thefirst to admit it.
The goalkeeper spoke to the media straight after the game, and this iswhat he said:
- Wenger on Giroud and late goals
- Should United have had a penalty?
- Manchester United 1-1 Arsenal - Report
on whether he is pleased with the point…Obviously we are not pleased with the performance but we have to take the point because we were losing and we equalised with three minutes to go. It was a great action and I thought maybe we deserved a little bit of credit for scoring the goal because as I said it was not our best performance and anyway we managed to get a result in a big game. We keep our unbeaten run going and that’s positive, but obviously we would’ve liked to win.
on not creating enough chances…We had passages of the game where we had good possession but we were not dangerous so I think this is what we lacked today. We didn’t create enough to score a goal, we basically created one chance and it went in so credit to Olivier that he came on and made a difference.
on the performance…We’ll take the point, because it was not our best performance and we are a little bit disappointed with our performance because I think we can do better. But in the end, even in a day where we were not at our best we managed to get the result and in the end, you know, when you’re losing with a few minutes to go and you equalise, you obviously have to be happy with the point.
on whether United can win the league…The difference stay the same so they are still in, if they had lost I think it would have been different, but now everybody is pretty much in the distance. Let’s see what will be the results today and tomorrow and hopefully we won’t slip too far behind.
