Petr Cech reacts on Twitter to Chelsea loss, sends Arsenal fans message

The 33-year-old took to social media after the Gunners' 1-0 loss to the Blues.

Petr Cech admitted he was 'disappointed' with Arsenal's 1-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

Diego Costa scored the winner for Cech's former side shortly after Per Mertesacker was sent off at the Emirates Stadium.

And the Arsenal goalkeeper was frustrated to have lost but commended his team's effort - and urged fans to keep going.

The loss was a bitter one for Arsenal supporters but, despite Chelsea being nearer to the relegation zone than the top four and the Gunners sitting near the top of the Premier League table, it wasn't all that surprising.

Indeed, the Blues traditionally beat Arsenal. That just seems to be fact.

Arsene Wenger's poor record against Jose Mourinho didn't come into play here - but Guus Hiddink seems to overcome him while in charge of Chelsea, anyway.

A disappointing day for Cech and Arsenal, then, although their monthly meltdowns might not be so costly this season if others keep dropping points, too.
