VETERAN goalkeeper, Petr Cech has acknowledged that he let Arsenal down during Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Brighton, with his performance not good enough.
Cech, who endured a difficult afternoon against the Seagulls, took responsibility for two goals that he should have prevented in a contest, which required the Gunners to have everyone performing at the peak of their powers.
Cech was unable to deal with the threat posed by an early corner, allowing Lewis Dunk to fire home.
The former Chelsea goalkeeper was then at fault again in the 26th minute, with a Glenn Murray effort squeezed under his body.
Europa League glory remains up for grabs to the Gunners, but they are set to face Italian giants AC Milan at the last-16 stage of that competition and the contrast in form between two continental rivals heading into that contest could not be more marked.
