Arsenal Goalkeeper Cech Out Of Tottenham Derby With Injury

"We hope for the same, the same response", Pochettino said. We need to get back to positive results before we speak about the championship which is at stake at the moment.

Furthermore, Sanchez suggested that things have even deteriorated in the last 12 months.

But Wenger did not dispute that fans were fuming after the Swansea game, which followed defeats to Manchester United and Barcelona and a goalless draw at home with Championship Hull in the FA Cup. "We can only look at ourselves to correct the results but everything went against us on Wednesday night".

We crushed them in the first 20 minutes and went 2-0 up. "We were hungry and brimming with confidence that day".

Meanwhile, Wenger remains confident that the supporters will back his team on Saturday, regardless of their current poor run of form which threatens to see them miss arguably their best chance of ending their wait for a league title in years.

Sanchez spoke out in an interview with DirecTV following his team's 2-1 loss to Swansea at the Emirates on Wednesday.

"It is about the special capacity that Alex Ferguson had and now Arsene Wenger", Sky Sports quote the Argentine as saying.

"Football is football, it is cruel sometimes". So, at the moment we don't dream, we have to be realistic and come back to what we do well. We have another big game in three days. The goalkeeper got hurt trying to sprint back toward the goal in the final seconds of the match.

Cech has been ruled out of the game with a calf injury, but is certain that Ospina will live upto expectations in such a crucial game.

"Petr Cech struggled. He had a groin problem before the game, and he struggled on a little bit", said Arsene Wenger.

Wenger confirmed after the match to the media that Cech has pulled his hamstring and will not play in Saturday's crunch match against North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Ospina will now start in goal this weekend and I'm sure many fans won't share Wenger's faith in the Colombian global as he's nowhere near Cech's level, so the Gunners are going to have to pray he has the game of his life on Saturday.
