Petr Cech admits Chelsea have piled more pressure on themselves for Thursday's crunch clash against Tottenham by failing to beat Barclays Premier League strugglers Wigan.

Andre Villas-Boas' side had pulled themselves right back into the title race with three victories in a row, including over previously unbeaten Manchester City last Monday, prior to Saturday's disappointing draw at the DW Stadium.

Tottenham made the most of their rivals' slip with victory over Sunderland on Sunday, and Cech said: "It's not an ideal point because we wanted to have three, and we can consider it as two points lost, but we have another game at Spurs and we need to get those points ideally back."
