As our move for Petr Cech nears completion, with reports suggesting that a deal could be announced in the coming days (via Sky Sports), it feels right to analyse the calibre of player we could be welcoming.
In terms of pedigree, Cech would be comfortable in any company, and he has bailed Chelsea out on a number of high-profile games in the past.
After appearing in Champions League finals and winning Premier League titles as well as a few FA Cup’s, Cech is no stranger to intense occasions.
Here are his top five performances over the past decade.

In what was another turmoil season at the club – with Rafa Benitez at the helm as an interim manager following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas – Cech remained a key figure for the Blues.
His performance against Man United in the FA Cup stands out, as the Czech star kept a clean sheet thanks to one of the greatest saves in the history of the competition.
Javier Hernandez couldn’t believe what he’d just witnessed.
