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.

Cech is seeking assurance regarding his future with Chelsea after losing his starting role to Thibaut Courtois against Burnley on Monday, reports the Daily Mail.

Cech has a number of suitors, including Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco, as he tries to determine how much action he will see with the return of Courtois.

Cech is available off the bench for Chelsea's Premier League opener against Burnley on Monday, but he will likely not play with Thibaut Courtois getting the start.

The goalkeeper battle is a tough one for manager Jose Mourinho, who seemed to give himself a small out by saying his World Cup players may not feature Monday. However, he threw caution to the wind and is starting Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle, Oscar and Courtois, who appears close to clinching the job over Cech, who could be seeing his long and storied career at Stamford Bridge coming to an end.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has yet to decide with Cech or Thibaut Courtois will be the starting goalkeeper this season, the Independent reports.

Cech appears to be fully recovered from the separated shoulder he suffered during the semifinal of the Champions League last season, but the decision to not loan Courtois back out to Atletico Madrid has caused uncertainty at Stamford Bridge. Either choice is an excellent one for fantasy owners, and Mourinho will use the remaining four preseason matches to determine his starter.
