Cech urges Arsenal to move on from Everton defeat

Goalkeeper Petr Cech refused to dwell on Arsenal's
late defeat at Everton, instead turning his attention
to the upcoming Premier League blockbuster
against Manchester City.
Arsenal lost for just the second time in the Premier
League this season after Ashley Williams headed
home Ross Barkley's corner in the 86th minute.
Alexis Sanchez had given the visitors a 20th-
minute lead at Goodison Park before Seamus
Coleman equalised for Everton in the second half.
The defeat not only ended Arsenal's remarkable
17-match league unbeaten streak on Tuesdays, but
it allowed Chelsea the opportunity to potentially
move six points clear atop the table.
Speaking afterwards, Cech said: "We played well
with the ball and we didn't give them chances.
Second half, obviously with the goal they came
back into the game and in the Premier League it's
very difficult.
"You can't control games for 90 minutes, there will
be moments where the opponents will show their
quality.
"Although they were not dangerous for most of the
game, they found two goals and in the end you go
home with a defeat.
"But you have to pick yourself up. There is a big
period coming up now with the games coming
thick and fast and there is no time to dwell on the
defeat. You have to move on and get ready for the
next one."
It does not get any easier for Arsenal, who make
the trip to Pep Guardiola's City on Sunday.
Arsenal are four points clear of City in second
position and Cech added: "Sometimes I think it is
best if after a big game you play another big game.
"You have opportunities to win, it's a kind of a six-
pointer - it's probably a perfect game for us."
