Chelsea star Petr Cech thinks that a Premier League title win could usher in a new era of dominance from the Blues, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The Stamford Bridge could wrap up the title with three games to spare after coming from behind to beat Leicester City 1-3 on Wednesday. All they now need to do is beat Crystal Palace on Sunday. This will be the first time they have won the division since 2010, when Carlo Ancelotti masterminded their league victory.
Cech believes the win could give this group the confidence they need to continue winning trophies and begin a new era of success at Stamford Bridge. Didier Drogba, John Terry, and the 32-year-old himself are the only survivors of the last ‘generation’ that Jose Mourinho created at the London based side. That group managed to win three Premier Leagues and even eventually the Champions League.
The Czech Republic international said: “The last title we won was in 2010, so it has been a long time,” said Cech. “This one is hopefully the start of a new era, another generation of players. There is only me, Didier and JT who have been here for the last decade. You can say this is a new generation of Chelsea, hopefully we will confirm the title on Sunday and this team will continue on.
“You can be a great player, but these moments to play difficult games under pressure, being champions, gives you another step, another dimension. You can see in difficult moments this season, this team has a lot of experience to overcome them. That is why we are in the position we are. The new players came in already with experience, winning the title elsewhere, which is important and why everything clicked quite quickly.”
