Strong work ethic vital to Arsenal’s unbeaten run, believes Cech

The Gunners are unbeaten in six games following the draw with Tottenham on Sunday.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech says he believes their strong work ethic has been pivotal to their unbeaten run in the league.

After Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham, the Gunners are now unbeaten in six Premier League games and currently sit joint top of the Premier League table alongside Manchester City.

They have only been beaten twice all season, to West Ham on the opening day and in a feisty affair with rivals Chelsea, and Cech says that their strong work ethic has proved pivotal to that run.

“It’s [down to] the work ethic of the team,” he told

“You never win things without going for it, without being focused, without being right in the training ground. I have to say that the team are focused on what we are doing every day and I have to say that this is the key.”

The goalkeeper also believes that Wenger’s side have that necessary focus to achieve things this season.

The Gunners were hotly tipped to be title contenders this year after a strong finish to the last campaign, and their form at the beginning of this season has amplified that belief.

Cech has been a part of that success so far, having come in as the summer and proved to be very much a star performer on a number of occasions already.

He though, was keen to praise the team’s efforts to do their best in every game and make sure they are ready to compete as a side.

“I believe that this team has that ability to be focused and ready to achieve. We are giving ourselves the chance to win every game,” he added.

“I think everybody understands their role within the team. People try to do their best every day to make sure we are ready to compete, and so far it’s been bringing the success.”
