Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech’s day went from bad to worse as he conceded four goals in a 4-3 defeat by Liverpool on Sunday before crashing his car into a pillar.
The former Czech Republic international, 34, was beaten four times at the Emirates Stadium as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool came from behind to condemn Arsenal to defeat in their opening Premier League game.
Philippe Coutinho’s double inspired Liverpool to come from behind and beat Arsenal 4-3 in an action-packed clash of Premier League heavyweights at the Emirates Stadium.
After seeing a penalty saved by Simon Mignolet, Theo Walcott put Arsenal ahead, only for Coutinho to reply with a picture-perfect free-kick in first-half injury time.
Goals early in the second half from Adam Lallana, Coutinho and Sadio Mane put Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool 4-1 up, but efforts from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers made for a nervy finish.
It was only Liverpool’s second win at Arsenal in 21 attempts and put an early dent in Arsene Wenger’s hopes of leading the London club to a first league title since 2004.
As he left the stadium after the match, Cech drove his car into a pillar in the Arsenal car park.
Pictures circulating on social media showed a large dent on the front-left of Cech’s car, while he stood beside it. Reports said nobody was injured in the incident.
