After his poor performance, Cech took to Twitter to state how sorry he was to fans.
If you want to win a game away of home in the best league in the world your GK can’t concede 2 goals like I did today … it’s simply not possible … The team fought back but the damage was done .

“It deserves a lot of respect because it’s his assessment of his performance,” Wenger said of Cech’s tweet.
“He’s a very intelligent guy, a very professional guy. He has saved us on other occasions. When the players do well you take the credit. When the players don’t do well you have to live with it.”
