Cech on 3rd Place

As we are all aware, the 2-1 home win against Everton, on Sunday afternoon, was enough to give us third place.

You`re probably also aware that third place grants you automatic qualification to the Champions League group stages, unlike fourth place whereby you could be handed a do-or-die qualifying tie against opposition that might just surprise you.

Petr Cech, who produced some stunning saves on Sunday, to prevent Everton snatching a point, has given his thoughts on the subject, and in particular the fact that third place doesn`t mean a 'broken` star tot the season, or as Petr puts it,

"Now everybody will have enough rest and we can start the season fresh."

"This is a big help because otherwise you have to change the pre-season and juggle who will come and on what date."

"If you have a bad summer you can start the season chasing."


So that`ll be a nice pre-season tour, a few friendly fixtures and no daunting Champions League qualification fixture to get in the way - sounds sound to me!

Agree with Petr Cech. It was a massive win against Everton. It could be vital to our summer preparations.
