Petr Cech: Porto Is No Easy Game For Chelsea

Keeper taking nothing for granted in Portugal…

Petr Cech has warned that Chelsea must not allow complacency to creep in when they face Porto in the Champions League tonight.
The Blues go head-to-head with their opponents to see which of them will top Group D. Despite already qualifying for the knock-out phase of the competition, Cech refuses to take anything for granted.

"We will see, we want to finish top but Porto away is not an easy game," the keeper told Chelsea's official website.

"We would like to win there and know we are sure to finish first but we will see. There are lots of games coming up.

"What helps is that against Wolverhampton Wanderers we put the young guys in and could rest some players.

"Some people were not in the squad, some people will not be in next time and at the moment we don't have too many injuries. Everyone is fit and has the energy to play the forthcoming games."

And defence is a crucial factor if Carlo Ancelotti's men are to succeed this season, according to Cech.

"I think that we have been playing well recently, more so at home but we have not made many mistakes at all," he added.

"You need a bit of luck as well and the most pleasing thing is we are scoring goals as well. Of course the victories are looking much better when you are winning three or four-nil, but we have some 1-0 wins as well, where the clean sheet really counts.
"You know if you score you have a huge chance of winning, which is what you need."
