The 374 game playmaker referenced the ease at which Leicester City cut Arsenal apart earlier in the season and confessed that he was much more anxious about the quality of Jurgen Klopp's forward line.
Cech had appeared uncomfortable with Emery's desire for his side to play out from the back, being caught out on numerous occasions during the early weeks of the season. He tapped home, but the flag was up, despite Mane being offside from the first phase of play, but behind the ball for Firmino's effort at goal.
His colleague Rio Ferdinand, however, argued against his statements as he said that the Gunners are a much different team from the one Manchester City faced in the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.
Striking a frustrated tone, Klopp went on: "Actually it was a brilliant attack, it's what you do on the training ground". It doesn't have to, we saw in the Manchester City game (a goalless draw) that, but it is possible at least.
Klopp is expecting a frantic encounter. "But I think we need to do things positively and while smiling and enjoying".
"It's disappointing when you are 1-0 up late on you should see it out and we didn't manage to do that".
He has made 341 appearances in all competitions, scoring 59 goals.
Speaking this week to SkySports, he said: "Tottenham might not have signed anyone in the summer, but they've only got to get into the top four and before Monday night it was their best start to a season". We are really good.' We have that feeling for maybe two minutes after the game, from the dugout to the dressing room, and then it's gone. The Spaniard has a long-standing habit of reading self-help books, and even used to hand them out to players at former clubs.
"It was a good test for us".
"They are in the time we expected, we didn't have to rush there was no reason for trying to get them ready". The progress takes time, a long time in football is very hard to demand.
This is Arsenal's biggest test for two and a half months and in that period they've done nearly everything asked of them. "If the next game would be next Friday then probably both would be fit, but the next game is on Saturday and the other one on Tuesday, so that could be a bit tight". It means we are a not a continuously solid team at the moment.
