CHELSEA TARGET CECH BACKUP

Chelsea are targeting Asmir Begovic as back-up to injured Petr Cech. Henrique Hilário is Ancelotti’s current first-choice back-up ahead of Ross Turnbull for Petr Cech and the Portuguese was given the starting nod at Wembley in the Community Shield against Manchester United.

However, both goalkeepers have made errors during the pre-season and have looked shaky at times, forcing Ancelotti to consider whether a new signing might offer more stability.
