Cech craves Liverpool shut-out

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is hoping to continue his run of clean sheets when Liverpool visit Stamford Bridge this weekend.

The Czech Republic stopper has failed to concede in his last three competitive matches, following a double shut-out against Montenegro in the Euro 2012 play-offs.

With the club still harbouring ambitions of winning the Barclays Premier League, Chelsea's nine-point deficit to leaders Manchester City means they can ill-afford any more slip ups.

"It makes everything look better," Cech said.

"I had two very good games [for Czech Republic].

"I made important saves in both of them to keep a clean sheet that helped us to win games and qualify, so I'm very happy.

"I hope that we will have another clean sheet on Sunday because it is a very difficult game."

Cech picked up his second clean sheet of the season against Blacburn Rovers in the club last league outing, with Cech continuing to show commitment to the Blues cause, as a collision with Ashley Cole led to him breaking his nose.

While on international duty, Cech was forced to wear a protective mask following the injury, but that didn't appear to hinder the goalkeeper during the international fixtures.
