Chelsea keeper proud of Stamford Bridge resilience

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has hailed the team's resilience this season as they stand on the brink of an historic League and FA Cup double.

Chelsea's victory over Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday made it six out of six against this season's Champions League-qualified teams - the first time in the Premier League era that a clean sweep over the other three has been achieved.

But Cech highlights the team's resilience as another reason why Carlo Ancelotti's side top the Barclays summit with just one game left to play.

"We are confident and we know that we shouldn't lose two games in a row," said Cech. "We know that when something goes wrong, we always want to put it right the next game and so far it has worked well."

He added: "We have won all of those big games home and away. Last season, before the change of the manager, we gave points to our rivals."

Sunday's results moved Cech level with Liverpool's Pepe Reina in the race for the Premier League Golden Glove. Both now have 16 clean sheets.

But Cech is putting all thoughts of personal glory aside as Chelsea chase their first title since 2006 this weekend.

Victory over Wigan at Stamford Bridge on Sunday would deliver the Barclays crown in Ancelotti's first season in charge.

"If at the beginning of the season someone had said we were going to play the last game at home and a win would win the league, I think everybody would have signed for it," declared Cech.

"So we know what we have to do. We play at home and it is always good if you can win a title at home."
