Petr Cech tips current crop to make history at Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech believes this current side can make it as the finest in the club's history.

The Blues are currently three points clear at the top of the Premier League going into the festive period, and have have lost just once in all competitions as they go about securing a first league crown since 2010. 

And Cech, whose own role in the side has been that of understudy to Thibaut Courtois, told the Daily Mail of his belief that the Blues merely need one piece of silverware to kick on and etch their name into footballing history. 

After being heavily active in the transfer market in the summer, Jose Mourinho has guided the Blues to the top of the table where they have shown little sign of budging over the first 16 games of the league season.

The defeat to Newcastle United at St James' Park earlier this month was a setback but they bounced back with a comfortable victory over Steve Bruces' struggling Hull City at the weekend to underline their status as title favourites. 


In Europe they have been similarly emphatic, clocking up 14 points out of a possible 18 to seal their passage to the round of 16 and secure a rematch against French titans Paris St-Germain whom they knocked out of the competition last season. 

They were victorious against Derby County on Tuesday evening in the Capital One Cup, and will face Brendan Rodgers' toiling Liverpool side over two legs attempting to book a place in March's final at Wembley. 

Confident Cech

With the Blues looking formidable, Cech believes winning trophies is the only way of analysing how they will be judged come the end of the season in May. 

"This team has the potential and the quality to be one of the best in Chelsea's history - if it can prove it by winning trophies," the 32-year-old said.

"I like the way we approach games. We want to win every game. You cannot go and just say we leave this competition and chase another one because in that competition you pick you can have one unlucky game and you're out.

"That is why we try to win every game and progress in everything we have entered."

Quadruple hopes

However the Czech Republic was coy on the Blues' chances of winning an unprecedented quadruple and acknowledged the size of the task ahead of them.

"The aim is to win as many games and competitions as possible, but football is football - it's difficult to know how many of them you'll win," he admitted.

"I think all the people that have come in this season have been doing remarkably well. Hopefully we all stay fit and the manager can use the whole squad because in this busy period you need everybody."
