Cech: Wins make me happiest

Petr Cech admits he is happy to accept the plaudits which come with keeping clean sheets but insists the priority is for Chelsea to win matches.

The Czech Republic international has enjoyed a stunning debut season in England, with the goalkeeper not conceding a goal in 18 of his 24 appearances in The Premiership.

Saturday's shut-out against Portsmouth was his seventh in a row and Cech acknowledges he is pleased his contribution has been recognised.

But the 22-year-old was also quick to point out that Chelsea's success this season is down to a team ethic, rather than an emphasis on individual performances.

"I can't say that it [a seventh clean sheet] doesn't please me," Cech told Pravo. "If it continues to happen as it is now, we can win games by scoring just one goal.

"It's nice and good for the psyche but the most important things to me are the wins and the points.

"If we win the title it will be much more important than the fact of how many clean sheets I have kept.

"Seven matches in a row, 691 minutes without conceding a goal, it is quite a big number but the media mostly write about our lead in the Premier League.

"We don't play as individuals. My shut-outs aren't important, just as who scores the goals isn't.

"We play and think as a team and this is the main reason for our success."

The Blues currently boast a ten-point lead over champions Arsenal and only Manchester City have proved capable of inflicting a defeat on Jose Mourinho's side this season.

An effortless 3-0 triumph over Pompey kept Chelsea on course for a first title in 50 years on Saturday but Cech has stressed that the team are not unbeatable.

He added: "Our play is on a high level, results are great, but until the end of the season there are still a lot of matches and anything is possible in football.

"We just go from match to match and we know that we must win another 11 matches to win the league."

He's already got his focus right along with the rest of the team which could make them the champions of the EPL this year!

Excellent for the team... Hopefully, they don't lose their momentum like Arsenal did...
