Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech insists there's no cliques inside the locker room.

Cech was also quick to quash talk of factions in the dressing room last term, reported rifts that ensured a trophy-less season which cost Carlo Ancelotti his job.

He told The Sun: "I'd be disappointed if players were happy they were not playing. We want everyone competing hard.

"And we'll need to be at our best again next season. It's not just Manchester United we need to match, there's City, Arsenal and Spurs. And I have a feeling Liverpool will be a force again.

"It's going to be an exciting season."
