Petr Cech pleased with performance against Bayern Munich

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech suggests that the Gunners could have lost their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich had it not been for his saves.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has suggested that the Gunners could have lost their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich had it not been for his saves.

The 33-year-old made a number of stops in the first half to keep the scores level, before Arsenal went on to beat the Bundesliga outfit 2-0 thanks to second-half goals from Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil.

"I think there were two key moments," he told Arsenal's official website. "Obviously if Thiago had scored early in the game then they would have had control of the game so it was a very important save at the start.

"And then I'm obviously glad I made the save against [Robert] Lewandowski as in that moment we could have been 1-0 down, but instead in a few minutes we were 1-0 up and [that] basically decided the game.

"As much as it went up and down and there were chances and shots and it was very entertaining, it looked like one goal might decide it. We are glad that we were the team that scored the goal."

The Gunners are joint-bottom of Group F with Dinamo Zagreb following the win, but they now trail leaders Bayern and Olympiacos by three points.
