Chelsea keeper Cech: Man Utd title celebrations can be destructive

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech believes Manchester United's Premiership success has 'destroyed' their Champions League chances this week.

"Football is sometimes a game with no logic," he explained to BBC 1. "Having won the title, you would say it was a big boost for them because they finished above us and celebrated.

"But that can be destructive. When you know you've won something you can relax more because in the back of your mind you have already succeeded.

"Maybe they will be more relaxed and this could be the advantage for us because we have to remember the feeling of going so close and ending up so disappointed."
