Petr Cech has taken a swipe at Arsene Wenger claiming the Gunners forgot how to win the Premier League under him.

The legendary goalkeeper said the French coach concentrated too much on style more than results.

The Gunners had a bad start season under new manager Unai Emery, but Four consecutive victories have seen them close the gap on Liverpool to six points.

“For any club who wins titles in the recent years, you have a team with the knowhow to finish it off – and you can see it in any sport,” he told reporters.

“Take Tiger Woods – it’s 10 years since he won a Major tournament. The longer it goes on, the harder it becomes.

“This club has not won the league for over 10 years so, obviously, you need to get back into knowing how to do it.

“We started with the new manager from scratch, basically, and we try to get this mentality of winning every game, progressing every game, working every day and, hopefully, we can build this up and win the title sooner rather than later. That will make the big difference.

“In the past I would say the Arsenal way was more important than getting the points sometimes and this is not how you win the league.

“Sometimes you need to make sure you win an ugly game, when you are not playing well but you just dig deep, close the back door and win 1-0 no matter how. I think this is what we lacked.

“Yesterday, we went through difficult moments but got the win with the clean sheet, so this is very positive.”
