Arsenal supporters have taken to Twitter to emphasise their frustration following Petr Cech’s below-par performance against the Reds in their crucial clash for the top four places.
A collection of individual mistakes were responsible for the fact that six goals were scored at the Emirates Stadium, shared evenly between Liverpool and Arsenal.
The experienced Czech goalkeeper was deceived on the first goal, as Coutinho looped a header over his reach to give Jurgen Klopp’s side a 1-0 lead.
To his credit, the former Chelsea goalie was mightily unlucky on Liverpool’s second goal of the game, as a deflection from Mustafi took the ball beyond his reach to double the Reds’ advantage.
Nonetheless, the third goal that Liverpool scored was solely applicable to the actions of Petr Cech. The 35-year-old failed to divert Roberto Firmino’s shot away from goal, and the ball landed in the back of the Arsenal net.
Here’s how the Arsenal fans reacted to his display on Twitter…
Kos and Cech are not good enough. We were lucky should have been beaten well and truly tonight. 3 lucky goals. But again our defense is abissmal to say the least. Looks like. Anyone can score. Chelsea next lol

Our left back and keeper are a big risk

I’ll be shocked if Petr Cech remains an Arsenal keeper next season but hey it’s Wenger and Arsenal…. Nothing can ever shock me again.

“Petr Cech saves a team 10 points a season.”
Ospina is probably wondering why he’s not playing…

Petr Cech needs to go. We need to sign Oblak. I have no words for Mustafi and Koscienly. Absolutely hopeless defending
