Chelsea keeper Jamal Blackman: Cech a huge inspiration

Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman admits he looks up to Arsenal No1 Petr Cech.

Blackman is currently on-loan at Wycombe Wanderers.

He said: “I've been with the first squad since I was 18, and so I spent a lot of time growing up with Petr Cech.

“I was around him a lot when he was number one and tried to be more like him.

“He is such a good professional on and off the pitch and a huge inspiration for me, so was great to be able to learn off him."
