Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech: A perfect first-half

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech says no-one inside the dressing room believe their Europa League quarterfinal tie is already wrapped up.

The Gunners defeated Napoli 2-0 in last night's first-leg at the Emirates.

But Cech told RMC: "We respect the quality of Napoli, it's a fit team.

"In the first half, we made a perfect match, then we had to defend and be united. We could have scored more goals, but at 2-0, we take such a result.

"We are happy with our performance but we know that nothing is decided, it's not over yet."
