Chelsea goalkeeper covets Premier League title

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is eager to reclaim the Premier League trophy from Manchester United for the first time in three years. 

Cech is frustrated by his club's shortcomings in the English top-flight during recent years, with just one league title in the silverware cabinet since Jose Mourinho left Stamford Bridge in September 2007.

"We haven't won the Premier League for three years in a row, so I think it would be great to get that back," the Czech international told the London Evening Standard. 

"We have some young players, some new players who have never won the league, so it would be a great step forward for them to come and accomplish that."

The Blues return to domestic league action this Saturday against Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge and having taken all three points at Norwich in their last fixture, the 31-year-old has his sights set on putting the Welsh outfit to the sword.

Cech, who will begin his 10th year at the west London club next season, has remained one of the core members of the squad along with Frank Lampard, John Terry and Ashley Cole since the self-proclaimed 'Special One' called time on his first spell in charge.

The giant 'keeper's taste for European glory in May last year has whet his appetite to share further success in the Champions League with Mourinho – the only major trophy to elude the Portuguese during his first tenure as Chelsea manager.

"We know how sweet it is to win the European Cup, too, so if we could go far in that and really challenge for the title, then that would be great," added Cech.
