Cech targets trophy sweep

26 September 2008 08:20
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has set his sights on winning four pieces of silverware this season. The Czech Republic international believes the depth of the Stamford Bridge squad is such that they can challenge domestically for the Premier League, Carling Cup and FA Cup, while simultaneously attempting to win the Champions League for the first time. Cech revealed his ambition after being named in a strong side sent out by manager Luiz Felipe Scolari for Wednesday's 4-0 Carling Cup third round rout of Portsmouth. "If you look at the players we have in our squad, whatever line-up we put on the pitch will be strong," he claimed. "We are trying to win every competition, so it is not a surprise that the manager decides to put out a strong team in all games. "We will see what happens in the later stages of the cups, but at the moment I am playing all the games. I feel physically very good and I am not suffering from any fatigue. "This group of players looks really impressive. We have a lot of quality here." Meanwhile, Cech believes the arrival of Brazilian coach Scolari in the summer has resulted in a more attractive style of football from the Blues. "You can see a little bit this season that we try to play a little more with the ball," he continued. "We have the players to play this style and I think, as a manager, you want to adapt to what you have in your squad. "We have a good squad to pass the ball but we haven't only played that sort of game. "Against Wigan we fought really hard to get three points with players a lot of people would say are only players to play nice football. "We showed that we are strong enough even in battles and this is important."
