Cech: My fault for howler

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech said he only had himself to blame after his howler gifted West Brom a goal in Saturday's dramatic 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Petr Cech: Left annoyed by his own mistake

Stephane Sessegnon had made it 2-1 to Albion when the ball squirmed through Cech's grasp and into the net.

And, although Eden Hazard converted a controversial late penalty to rescue a point, the experienced Czech Republic shot-stopper feels the Blues would have won if he had not lost his footing at such a key moment in the match.

"There was no indication of us not winning," Cech told his personal website. "However, shortly after the interval we conceded a cheap goal from a corner.

"Then we let them go 2-1 up because of my mistake. I lost my footing on the pitch and then I failed to react to the shot properly. It was a cheap goal to concede.

"One point is better than nothing, but that doesn't change the fact that we should have won and put the advantage of playing at home to good use."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
