Cech blamed himself for conceding two goals to Brighton in the latest loss for the Gunners.
Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Čech has taken to Twitter to apologize for his performance after his costly errors saw the Gunners lose 2-1 away to Brighton in the Premier League.
The former-Chelsea stopper failed to convincingly deal with a corner in the first half, which gifted Lewis Dunk an easy tap-in for the hosts. Glenn Murray doubled the lead soon after, as the Arsenal defense was once again undone by a set-piece. Clearly feeling he owed his fans an apology after the game, Čech wrote an emotional post on Twitter after the game.
If you want to win a game away of home in the best league in the world your GK can’t concede 2 goals like I did today ... it’s simply not possible ... The team fought back but the damage was done .— Petr Cech (@PetrCech) March 4, 2018
Arsenal fans were horrified to see their side lose their fourth game on the bounce, as Premier League new boys took the game to their opponents and ran out deserved winners against the Gunners. 'Wenger Out' banners were seen in the away end, as a large number of traveling supporters vocalized their frustrations with their manager's recent efforts.
While Brighton's win represents a crucial victory in their battle against relegation, Arsenal's loss means that their chances of reaching the Champions League via their Premier League standing is becoming increasingly unlikely - and winning the Europa League is now their best chance of qualifying for the highly lucrative tournament.
