Chelsea keeper Cech hopes for more playing chances

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech was happy seeing action in their Champions League win over Sporting CP.

The 32-year-old has been displaced after 10 years as first choice by Thibaut Courtois and has been linked with a move away from Chelsea, with numerous clubs reported to be interested, including Arsenal.

"It's up to everyone to keep working and to show to the manager when you get a game that you can play any game," Cech said on chelseafc.com.

"For everybody it's important to have this opportunity to play and to be in 'game shape' because the season is very long.

"You need everybody in the squad to be available and in the best condition possible to hope that you can win anything."
