Cech confident going into Newcastle clash

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has stated that his side’s experience should stand them in good stead as they face fellow Champions League qualification hopefuls Newcastle on Wednesday.

The Stamford Bridge club are currently a point behind Alan Pardew’s men, as fifth and sixth in the standings meet in west London.

The Czech Republic international is eager to get three points, and is in confident mood ahead of the fixture.

“I think experience will be really important on Wednesday. Newcastle are in a position they have not been in before – or maybe once, a long time ago – we have been there many times,” he told Mirror Football.

“That could be the decisive factor. There is everything to play for. The experience could help.”

Cech also looked ahead to the Champions League final against Bayern Munich on May 19th, but is hoping to have secured a top four place before then.

“We would like to go to Munich and have a week with the sense of having a job done, that would be ideal, but we have to fight for that.

“Bayern can’t win their title so all they have to concentrate on is a game at home against us in the Champions League final.

“We play so many games with pressure so we will be used to be playing with it. Let’s see how it goes. You can never say what will happen, but hopefully it will be a day to remember,” he concluded.
