GOALKEEPERS ON THE CHELSEA TV SOFA
Chelsea's four goalkeepers were in the Chelsea TV studio for Friday Night Live on the club's in-house channel last night.
Ahead of our game against Manchester United on Sunday, Cech was reminded that he made his competitive debut against the Red Devils back in 2004 when he kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 victory.
The four discussed their early days playing as a goalkeeper and Cech revealed he 'played on field and only went in goal for a training session because no one else would.'
With both Frank Lampard and John Terry out for Sunday's clash against United, Cech is expected to wear the captain's armband, which he said 'is a very special feeling. When you see all the legends that have led the team out in the past, they were all great, but it does add to the pressure!'
Next up they were asked to recall that Champions League-winning night in Munich back in May, which Hilario described as 'destiny!' with Cech adding the best save he has ever made was 'at the end in Munich.' Of course, during that game he faced a penalty in extra-time from former team-mate Arjen Robben which he recalled for viewers.
'You go to a massive game, and this was a huge moment in the game. Sometimes Robben goes left, and sometimes right - he doesn't give any clues,' said the Czech international. 'It was late in the game, and everyone was really tired. It's stressful for the player, so I thought he would go with power. I guessed at the very last minute that he would go left - I felt he would shoot there, and actually he did.'
Moving back in time, Cech also recalled his debut game and his arrival at Chelsea in 2004.
'My first few games I knew I had to play really well so that the fans would understand me and the way I play. It was great, we started well and we won on my debut,' he said. 'There weren't many shots that game, I think only one from Scholes, and Giggs missed a header in the second-half, but it was pretty quiet for me.'
Hilario spoke about his, which was against Barcelona, which he cites as 'a dream. Everyone knows how I ended up playing that game. I had huge pressure on my shoulders, but I think I always dealt well with the pressure, and we finished with a victory and a clean sheet.'
