Cech - How I try to intimidate strikers

By Lloyd Webb

Petr Cech has revealed how he tries to get the better of opposition strikers.

The goalkeeper has faced some of the world’s best forwards over the course of a career that has seen him win the Premier League and FA Cup four times, three League Cups and the Champions League.

"You have to believe in yourself. You have to believe that what you are doing is the right way when you go to the game and you are ready"

Cech broke the Premier League’s clean-sheet record earlier this season, and says there are a number of ways to try and psyche out opponents.

“There are many ways you can intimidate people during a game,” he told Arsenal Player. “With your aggression is one way, but nobody likes to have no time.

“You press them all the time and put them under pressure. Any player that has time and feels comfortable to control the ball and play, obviously can play much better.

“If you don’t give them the time and put them under pressure, then it becomes much more difficult. I try to find ways not to give people the chance to feel comfortable in a situation when they face me, then it means they might not get a goal.

“You have to believe in yourself. You have to believe that what you are doing is the right way when you go to the game and you are ready.”
