Petr Cech has signalled Arsenal‘s intent ahead of their much-anticipated clash with Manchester United in the Premier League this weekend.
The Gunners head to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon with a six-point advantage over Jose Mourinho’s men and are unbeaten since a defeat at home to Liverpool on the opening day of the season.
A number of Arsenal players are speaking with real confidence in the lead-up to the match with United and Cech has stressed that the north London outfit are looking to leave their rivals in the title race.
‘It is another six-point game,’ the former Chelsea goalkeeper told Arsenal.com.
‘We drew the match against Spurs and there is a little gap between us and Liverpool, so you want to make sure that you stay very close and that every time they drop points, you are ready to take advantage.
‘With United, they are behind us, so to leave them [further] behind is one aim and the second thing is to stay near the top, within touching distance of everyone else.
