Arsenal star admits: We are not 100 percent yet and our game is not fluent enough


Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech says the Gunners are yet to hit top gear after their hard fought win against Southampton.

A late Santi Cazorla penalty gave all three points to Arsene Wenger's side as they moved up to 6th in the table.

The former Czech international was delighted with the reaction after his own goal gave the Saints the lead in the first half as the Gunners prepare to face Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

"[The goal?] It was a good free-kick," Cech told Arsenal's official website.

"I got a touch and I was so pleased that I saw the ball going on the bar, but in the end it turned out to be an own goal. Which obviously, in that moment of the game, was against the run of play and we didn't need this unlucky moment.

"But I think our reaction was very good, we got a goal back in the first half, we tried to push for the winning goal. It came in the last minute but I think we were aggressive and we were searching for it so in the end we probably deserved a little bit of luck back.

"I think we are not 100 per cent yet.

"Our game is not as fluent as it could be and it should be. But I think we are getting the results that we need and this is the most important sometimes when you are playing and you know not everything is happening the way you want, that you find a way to win games.

"Obviously we did so, so we are happy with the three points and we go game by game and try to improve every day.

"For the penalty, what would it be like for me to comment? Because there were so many people, I couldn't see anything and I'm, you know, 105 yards away.

"So I didn't see the incident. Second thing, Santi was really strong because it was an injury to Laurent so he had to wait for quite a long time and he was very composed. The great players do great things and he did it today."
