"There is always one odd year where things can change".
Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is stepping up his recovery ahead of his side's crunch clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, the Daily Mail reports. Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn't win the title.
But Cech insists the title - and not just leapfrogging Tottenham - is still the Gunners' target.
"Spurs are the better team right now but to really have the upper hand they have to do it consistently over the next few years, although with the talented young squad they have I don't see why that won't be the case".
"Success is ultimately winning trophies".
Arsenal lifted the FA Cup in May, their third time winning the prestigious trophy in four years. "Although the season was not always what we wanted, we always had a trophy at the end of it".
Aided by the non-stop scoring of Harry Kane - a player who has scored in every league match he's played against Arsenal - and the fact Mauricio Pochettino has fashioned a well-organised, hard to break down team, it's now over three years since an Arsene Wenger side has tasted league victory in the derby.
He went on to further tell Sky Sports. "You can see from his work at Southampton, he showed that he is very capable as a manager and coach".
Most of Mauricio Pochettino's star players will have had breaks from football during the worldwide fixtures, with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris all picking up injuries that kept them out of contention for their countries.
"There was always something missing but I would say the difference was when Pochettino came", he added.
Former Arsenal defender Lee Dixon insists Sanchez and Ozil would have been "shown the door" if they had played in the teams of his era, but Cech has defended his team-mates.
