The draw against Liverpool last night was either encouraging or disappointing depending on your outlook, and it seemed to me that the goals we conceded were sloppy to say the least.
Petr Cech has been outstanding for us this season, easily earning Arsenal around 10 points already this season but last night he didn’t seem his reliable and dependable self.
The first goal Firmino scored was from a save that Petr Cech pushed into the path of the Liverpool striker. Was the initial shot from Emre Can that good that Cech couldn’t have pushed it wide and to safety? I’m not so sure.
The second goal from Firmino will be credited as a moment of class but was it impossible to save? Maybe I’m being harsh on Cech and have unrealistic expectations because of the fantastic form he’s been in this season but I thought he could have reached that.
Then the third goal in the last minute, scored by the famous Welsh Xavi (or Welsh Pirlo as he’s now known because of his wavy hair). Cech got down quick enough and got a hand to it but I thought he should have kept that out as well.
Maybe I’m disappointed at throwing 3 points away and being a bit harsh on Petr Cech, but I did feel he was below par yesterday.
