Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech laments technical mistakes and loose passes


Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech was happy with his side's second half performance against Liverpool but has lamented "technical mistakes and loose passes" in the first half.

The Gunners were missing Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny in central defence and struggled to cope with Liverpool's intensity in the early stages of the game.

They dominated in the second half with the 33-year-old happy to take positives after the final whistle.

"We made too many technical mistakes in the first half with loose passes and it gave them a few chances to counter-attack, but in the second half we improved on that," Cech told Arsenal Player.

"We were much more aggressive, we played much more in their half and obviously we created more chances, so in the end we could've won the game.

"In this game it's very difficult to believe that it ended up 0-0. They had a few chances and most of the second half we were in control and had a lot of chances. We couldn't find the winning goal.

"It's a goalless draw but I think it must have been an unbelievable game to watch for the neutrals.

"I'm very happy that I helped my team-mates, which helped me overcome my difficult moments, and it gave us a chance to search for the winning goal in the second half.

"Obviously we scored one goal which was disallowed, which is a pity but overall we can take a lot of positives from the game.

"We need to move on."
