Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has claimed Arsene Wenger’s men have the top two on the log in their sights after securing the fifth spot in the English Premier League – and are already eyeing their clash with the Manchester clubs later in the season.
Arsenal’s title hopes were completely written off after two away losses last month before the last international break.
But the manager have now gone seven matches unbeaten in all competitions to draw level with Premier League Champions Chelsea and now sit six points behind joint leaders Manchester City and Manchester United.
The North Londoners have won just two away games against title rivals since the 2013/14 Premier League season and visit high flying Manchester City on November 5 before playing host to Manchester United on December 2.
And Cech said playing both league leaders will give them the chance to close the gap. At this time, the former Chelsea goalkeeper said the team need to make sure they win all matches and wait to see what will happen next.
Petr Cech has kept four straight clean sheets since conceding four goals at Anfield Stadium but after a laboured victory over Brighton, he admitted there room for improvement.
