Petr Cech: In action at Norwich

Oscar's early strike had given Jose Mourinho's side the lead in Sunday's clash at Carrow Road, only for Anthony Pilkington to equalise with a second-half header before substitutes Eden Hazard and Willian netted late goals to secure the victory.

The result was Mourinho's first away Premier League win since returning to the Blues this summer, something which Cech sees as a platform to build upon.

"It's always good to have a positive start and go one better so we hope to get better every game," he told Sky Sports.

"Today it was an important win for us especially in the circumstances that we conceded an equaliser quite late in the second half, so we can take another step forward.

"I thought that in the first half today, we controlled the game and we could have scored more goals than only one.

"Once they got back into the game, it's a Premier League side playing at home; they were full of confidence because it was only 1-0.

"They got the equaliser so it became more difficult for us but the reaction was great. From the moment the equaliser went in, we had to get up and went and scored the two goals."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
