Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is of the opinion that there will still be a twist in the tale this season after the Gunners continued to slip down the table.
Fraser Forster inspired Southampton to depart the Emirates Stadium with a point on Tuesday night after a 0-0 draw which leaves Arsenal fourth in the standings and five points adrift of leaders Leicester City.
The result also means Arsene Wenger’s side have won just one league game in 2016, taking just three points from their last four league outings. That form has seen Arsenal drop from the position of league leaders at the turn of the year to fourth place, with Manchester City and fierce rivals Spurs now above them on the table.
But the former Chelsea goal tender who won four league titles during his trophy-laden years at Stamford Bridge, insists there will be more drama between now and the end of the season and Arsenal will be working hard to remain firmly in the title picture.
“There is a long way to go and there is always a twist in the tale. You keep working hard every day and try to keep getting results. If we believe then I think we can still do it – there are more than enough games to put ourselves back at the top of the league so we will work for that.”
“We had a position where we could only look at ourselves but now we are behind so we need some of the results to go our way.
“These are two points lost. It is not ideal to drop two points at home but it was one of those games where we deserved more.”
Arsenal had 11 shots on target during the game and the Saints goalkeeper who is yet to concede in four games since returning from a 10-month injury lay-off did well to deny the likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud.
