Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech was full of praise for teammate Paulo Ferreira following last night’s Champions League win at Benfica.

The 33-year old Portuguese defender made a rare start as the Blues saluted 1-0 in the quarter-final first leg at Estadio da Luz and his solid performance was not lost on gloveman Cech.

"Paulo is a fantastic player," Cech said. "He is really intelligent and knows exactly how to get ready for the big games.

"Unfortunately he doesn't have as much time as he would like to maybe, but every time he plays he gives the best for the team and that is why today he was very important and kept his guy quiet."
