Cech didn't have to make a single save in Chelsea's 5-0 rout of Swansea City on Saturday, his third consecutive clean sheet in all competitions, including two during Premier League play.

With Thibaut Courtois still not 100 percent due to a finger injury, Cech got another start against a struggling Swansea side no longer with Wilfried Bony to lead the attack. Up next in league play, if he starts, is a tough home game against Manchester City on Jan. 31.

With Thibaut Courtois (finger) still not fully fit, Cech is likely to get the start Saturday against Swansea City.

Cech posted a four-save shutout of Newcastle last weekend in place of Courtois, and despite being the latter's deputy, Cech remains one of the best keepers in the world.

Cech, starting in place of the injured Thibaut Courtois (thumb), made four saves to post his second Premier League clean sheet of the season during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

Cech has allowed just one goal in his last four matches in all competitions, and while he remains one of the best keepers in the world, he'll be the backup when Courtois is healthy.

Cech, getting the start in place of the injured Thibaut Courtois (muscular injury), did not record a single save during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Cech was tested once, but the shot fell wide of the net, keeping him with a donut in the saves category. However, the defense did more than enough to help him post his first Premier League clean sheet of the season, though his starting time is expected to be short-lived, as manager Jose Mourinho said Courtois' injury was minor.

Cech will start Saturday against Hull City in place of Thibaut Courtois, who is out with a minor muscular injury.

Cech has yet to make a Premier League start this season, though he will make his debut with an excellent clean sheet opportunity against a Hull City side that has really struggled to score this term.

Cech came on in the 24th minute of Chelsea's Premier League match against Arsenal on Sunday after Thibaut Courtois was forced out after suffering a concussion.

Neither keeper recorded a save in the match, though Cech will be given the fantasy clean sheet in most leagues after playing more than 60 minutes. The severity of Courtois' concussion will be determined in the coming days, but if he is forced to miss any time, Cech will resume the starting duties he's held for the past decade.

Queens Park Rangers was one club the keeper was offered to, but it is understood that the veteran was more interested in a club based in London. He will remain at Chelsea for his 11th season with the team.
