The Gunners goalkeeper feels a congested battle for the Premier League crown could be decided by goal difference, with four at Swansea a big boost

Petr Cech was delighted to see Arsenal put four past Swansea City on Saturday, with the goalkeeper warning that “every goal might count” in the Premier League title race.

Chelsea remain seven points clear at the top of the table, but the chasing pack have bunched up behind the Blues.

There are just five points between Tottenham in second and Manchester United in sixth, and the battle to take the crown looks set to go down to the wire.

Arsenal’s efforts at the Liberty Stadium offered them a timely boost in that department, with Arsene Wenger’s side having now found the target on 26 more occasions than they have been breached.

Chelsea top that chart as well at present, with a goal difference of plus 30, but Cech is pleased to see the Gunners displaying a ruthless streak to stay in touch.

He said: "Every time you can score more goals you should try to do so.

"That is because every goal will be important when you see how tight it is in the top five places.

"Every goal might count so we try to make sure, when we can, to continue to search for more goals. And we wanted to make sure that at 3-0 and 4-0 we didn't concede."

Cech was also happy to see Arsenal return to winning ways on the road in South Wales, with victory at Swansea coming on the back of dropped points away at Bournemouth, Manchester City and Everton.

He added: "Our away form was brilliant at the start of the season - or most of the time.

"We had a loss at Everton and suddenly we had another two games where we dropped points. But we gave the right answer here that it doesn't matter.

"You have to carry on, get ready and there are a lot of games to be played. We have to play everybody who is around us, so we can take points from them. So we are in a good position."
