Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has insisted that he's focused on securing all three points against Chelsea this weekend, reports the London Evening Standard.
The veteran is set to return to Stamford Bridge on Saturday for the first time since leaving west London behind this past summer.
After starring at Chelsea for more than a decade, Cech completed a move to the Emirates in the last transfer window and beat his former club at Wembley in this season's curtain-raiser.

Now, ahead of what's set to be an emotional return to the Bridge for the 'keeper, Cech has insisted that his only concern is playing well and securing the victory for his current club.
“I have never played at Stamford Bridge in the visiting team so it will be a new experience for me," Cech said. "I go to a familiar place but most important for me will be to win the game. That’s the way it goes.
“Obviously it will be new to play against Chelsea but when you start playing the game the only concern you have is ‘can I play my best game and can we win?’
“In a way it is nice that I spent so much time there. That I know every corner of the stadium and the space, so for me there will be no surprises."
Cech the difference
After a disappointing home debut for Cech against West Ham, the former Chelsea star has gone from strength-to-strength in north London in recent weeks.
It's certainly not surprising, however, as the 33-year-old is one of the most established and experienced goalkeepers in the game.
In Asmir Begovic, Chelsea have replaced Cech well, but the Arsenal goalkeeper really could help Arsene Wenger's side challenge for the Premier League title this term. One thing's for sure, this weekend's fixture may well prove a fascinating contest. Perhaps Cech will leave Stamford Bridge with yet another three points.
