Chelsea legend Petr Cech made his first appearance in 19 months as he featured in a Premier League 2 match for Chelsea.

The 38-year-old manned the goal post in a Premier League 2 game against Tottenham u23 side, with Chelsea ending the game as winners.

Cech is registered in Frank Lampard’s Premier League squad and consequently needs game time to ensure he’s still up to speed.

Cech was in goal in place of Lucas Bergstrom, who played for the Under-18 side on Saturday and Chelsea do not want the Finn playing two games in the space of 48 hours.

Within twenty minutes of action, Cech had already conceded two goals, as the former Czech international didn’t start the game in bright form. Firstly, his first touch was poor as he tried to play out from the back, rather sending the ball for a corner.

Tottenham would eventually take the lead from the set-piece, courtesy of a Jubril Okedina’s finish, which came only three minutes into the game, with Cech in no man’s land following Harvey White’s ball.

With 17 minutes into the game, Spurs would add to the lead to make it 2-0, with Dane Scarlett’s header making it 2-0 for Tottenham.

The young Chelsea team would however bounce back in the second half and win the game 3-2.

Cech played all 90 minutes of the game.
