Petr Cech says Chelsea are targeting two trophies before February in order to set them up for a historic haul of silverware at the end of the season.

The Czech Republic 'keeper was in action on Wednesday as Chelsea came through a scare against Manchester United in the Capital One Cup, booking their place in the Quarter Final against Leeds after a 5-4 victory at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will be targeting loftier trophies than the League Cup come the end of the season as reigning European champions and FA Cup holders, while they also sit atop of the Premier League table after 9 games.

But before then Cech wants to lay the foundations for a successful season by going all the way in the League Cup as well as claiming victory in the World Club Cup in December.

"I am glad that we have progressed because a lot of good teams have gone out already," he told his official website.

"It would be great to see us in the final in February. It's played at Wembley and games there are always worth being involved in.

"If we could win this competition, then we might have two trophies by the end of February because in December we will play in the Club World Cup."

Cech has conceded seven goals against Manchester United in the past three days following Chelsea's controversial 3-2 defeat against the Red Devils on Sunday, and the 30-year-old admitted it was nice to play in an open, entertaining game after the controversies of the last few days.

"This was exactly the kind of Chelsea versus Manchester United the whole world wants to see," he said.

"The match on Sunday did not end in the best way due to all of the things that surrounded it, but this was a real celebration of football. All of the players deserve credit for that.

"I am glad that both teams forgot about what happened on Sunday and it was a completely new match.

"There was plenty of quality on show from both sides, mainly in attacking play. There was real drama and nine goals.

"For the spectators it must have been great to watch, but for myself and the managers it was not that great at times."
