Petr Cech says Arsenal are a team “ready to achieve” and has put their fine Premier League form down to a strong “worth ethic”.
The Gunners are level on points with Man City at the top of table after both teams earned draws over the weekend. Arsenal’s 1-1 scoreline with Tottenham stretched their unbeaten Premier League run to six games and Cech says there success so far is down to hard work.
“We started very well in the Community Shield, our first competitive game after we had a very good pre-season,” Cech told Arsenal Player. “Then the first league game came and we lost 2-0 at home. That’s possibly the worst start we can imagine, but we recovered from it and learnt from it.
“Since then we’ve been picking up points and as a team we’ve settled into the way we want to play. I think everybody understands their role within the team. People try to do their best every day to make sure we are ready to compete, and so far it’s been bringing the success.
“It’s [down to] the work ethic of the team. You never win things without going for it, without being focused, without being right in the training ground. So far, I have to say that the team are focused on what we are doing every day and I have to say that this is the key.
“You prepare every day and if you are really focused in what you are doing every day, then you give yourselves chances to win games. I believe that this team has that ability to be focused and ready to achieve. We are giving ourselves the chance to win every game.”
