Cech: Chelsea must move on from Liverpool draw

22 April 2013 16:49

Petr Cech has called on his Chelsea team-mates to move on from the disappointment of conceding a last-minute goal at Liverpool on Sunday.

The London club had led twice at Anfield thanks to goals from Oscar and Eden Hazard but Luis Suarez equalised in the 96th minute, damaging Chelsea's hopes of finishing in the top four.

However, Cech, who captained the side, believes his colleagues now need to put that out of their mind before they face FC Basel in the UEFA Europa League semi-finals on Thursday.

He told Chelsea's official website: "Just one point is better than nothing, but in added time when you are defending a lead it's disappointing we couldn't see the game out.

"We had a disappointing end to this game but we have another massive game to come on Thursday so we must forget about this one and concentrate on the next match.

"We are in a position where we are fighting for everything. There's a lot of pressure in the Europa League because we want to win it and we are in the semi-finals.

"Every league game we have to fight for the top four and it's very tight, so there is pressure, and you have to find time to relax and make sure you are mentally fresh for the next game."

Basel remain top of the Swiss Super League, ahead of Thursday's clash at Stamford Bridge, following a 2-2 draw with FC Thun at the weekend.
