STUNNER! Chelsea name Cech in Premier League as 'emergency cover'

Chelsea have named Petr Cech in their 25-man Premier League squad as 'emergency cover'.

The Czech goalkeeper retired from playing 2019 and has since become a technical advisor at Chelsea.

But the 38-year-old will now be an option for Frank Lampard as his fourth-choice goalkeeper.

"Petr Cech has been included in the squad as emergency goalkeeper cover," a statement on Chelsea's website read.

"This is a precautionary step due to the unprecedented conditions currently caused by the Covid-19 crisis. He takes up a position as a non-contract player."
