PETR CECH HAS taken to social media to give an honest assessment of what proved a difficult top-flight Arsenal debut against West Ham.

Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat has been lambasted by many, especially with the club tipped to go far in this season’s title race.

Cech owned up to his part in the loss and posted the following to his Twitter account.

The veteran will hope to right his wrongs in Arsenal’s next game – an away assignment against Crystal Palace in a week’s time.
