Petr Cech is proving he deserves his place in the Chelsea squad with incredible performances in first-team training.


He'll provide emergency cover for Frank Lampard's side, but footage of Cech in Chelsea training for the first time in five years has emerged and he looks sharp.

Cech still looks mobile between the sticks and pulled off a number of saves while getting back into the swing of things ahead of Saturday's clash with Manchester United.

Fans have reacted to the footage and they wouldn't be against the former Czech Republic international having one last dance at Stamford Bridge.

Cech, who retired after a stint with Arsenal, has 'amazed' Chelsea players and staff in training.

His fitness and agility convinced players and staff that he could still do a job at the highest level.

Speaking after Chelsea's goalless draw against Sevilla in the Champions League, Lampard said it was a "no brainer" to have Cech in the squad in such a unique season.

"It's definitely not for the romance," he explained.

"Pete's been training with the keepers for a little while. He's very fit and still relatively young. Pete finished playing when he could have probably carried on and taken on his role at Chelsea, which he does very well.

"We had a space in the squad and this year is like no other because of Covid and what it might do to selection and isolation. So it was an easy one. Pete will still do his day job but he's there if we need him.

"Whether we see him or not I'm not so sure. It depends how the season goes with Covid and isolations.

"I certainly felt it was a no brainer to have Pete in the squad for that reason and he can only help the goalkeepers we have. He's one of the best in the world in the modern era.

"If we're in crisis we couldn't ask for anything much better than having Petr Cech around. I don't expect it but nobody expected what we've seen in the last six or seven months around the world."
