Former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech told BBC Sport that Arsenal have no chances to challenge the Blues in the title race this season after losing 3-1 against Liverpool at Anfield.
The Gunners now can only focus on a top four finish, according to the Czech Republic star.
“We were more aggressive after the break and started winning the 50-50 battles – he said – It’s disappointing when you lose the game, but more disappointing conceding the first two goals because we weren’t in danger.
“With three points we would have been in the chase for the title, but now we’re too far.
Then Cech added: “We need to ensure that we finish as high as possible and in the top four.”
