Petr Cech: Frustrated by dropped points

Petr Cech admitted Arsenal blew a great chance of claiming three points against Crystal Palace and insists the team will try and win all their remaining games.

The £10million summer signing from Chelsea was handed a recall at the expense of David Ospina and despite being largely a spectactor, was powerless to prevent Yannick Bolasie’s late leveller earning the Eagles a 1-1 draw.

And Cech acknowledged Arsenal missed their chance after leaders Leicester had drawn at home to West Ham earlier on Sunday.

“We should’ve seen the game off,” the Czech said. “This is obviously two very important points that’s we’ve dropped.

“We’ve been talking about the situation where if any of the teams ahead of us slip, we need to get three points but unfortunately we’ve not been able to do that. It’s disappointing.

“We were ready to push on, we tried to win all our games and we will try to win all the remaining games too.

“Other teams are coming very close now and there will be an interesting fight until the end of the season. Let’s see if winning all our games is going to be enough to get higher up in the table.”
