Chelsea's historic 2004/05 side: Where are they now?
The Czech shot-stopper has helped to solidify a once-defensively shaky side
In his short time as a Gunner, the Czech shot-stopper has helped to solidify a once-defensively shaky side and provided a solution to a problem position that had existed at the Emirates for a number of years.
Cech first arrived in London in 2004, becoming one of Roman Abramovich's first signings as Chelsea owner. Former No.1 Carlo Cudicini was duly usurped by the ex-Rennes custodian, who claimed the Golden Glove in his first season with the club and won a total of 13 major honours in his 11 years at the Bridge.
Cech made the move across the capital last year after being overtaken in the pecking order by Thibaut Courtois, with Arsenal and Chelsea both aiming to challenge for the title this term. – James Dampney
