It was a disappointing night on Wednesday as our 19-match unbeaten run came to an end as Southampton knocked us out of the EFL Cup.
But we have an immediate chance to make amends when we face West Ham United on Saturday in the Premier League, in which we are unbeaten since the opening day of the season.
Petr Cech has been ever-present in that run, and he is in no doubt as to the best moment of the campaign so far – the 3-0 win against his former club, Chelsea.
“We scored goals at the right times, and the moment we scored the first we didn’t stop being active,” the goalkeeper says of that game.
“We didn’t aim to protect a 1-0 lead, we searched for more and sometimes in big games, when you give yourself a two-goal advantage, that is a big mountain for the other team to climb.
“In these big games, any lead can be significant and we really took advantage in the first half - when we had chances, we scored them and that what made the difference.
“We got exactly what we deserved because we were brilliant, we were ready to compete and we scored at the right times and didn’t allow them to come back.”
