Chelsea goalkeeper, Petr Cech has surpassed the number of Chelsea appearances achieved by two club legends.

Last Sunday at Wembley, Cech played his 422nd game, one more than Steve Clarke, and two more than Kerry Dixon.

In nine seasons at Stamford Bridge, Cech, a seventh all-time appearance maker, has broken the Premier League record for not conceding a goal, 1,024 minutes, or more than 11 games.

Cech lifted the London Blue's first league title in half a century in 2005. And Cesc saved three penalties in Munich as we became the first London club to win the Champions League.

'I am pleased I am getting numbers under the belt which puts me among those fantastic players,' said Cesc on Chelsea's website. 'When I got past Gianfranco Zola as the top foreign appearance maker, one of the best players ever at the club, it was a great achievement, and now I have over 400 and am climbing the ranking.

'I am pleased to have played so many, because it shows I have been the number one choice and have kept my place in the team in one of the best clubs in the world.'

'For us, the disappointment of losing the semi-final against City will be a factor, and we need to make sure we are over that,' he said. 'It's a derby game, a huge game anyway, and if they win they know they are safe from relegation and can then play without pressure.

'They often raise their game at Craven Cottage, especially against us,' he continued. 'It's a tough fixture for us, it always has been. We never find it easy to play there, but the pressure is on us now and we need to win our games to make it easier to qualify for the Champions League.'
