London - 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.

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.
