Petr Cech insists that Chelsea's season wil only be a success if they win trophiesReuters

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has dismissed suggestions of the Blues already being the best team in Europe, insisting that the team's success can only be judged at the end of the season.

The West London, who failed to lift any trophy in the 2013/14 season, have been in fine form in all competitions this season, losing only a single game so far. And based on their current form there have been suggestions that the Blues will go on to win all the trophies this season.

But Petr Cech, who has been tipped to leave the club after losing his one spot to Thibaut Courtois, feels that the Blues can only prove themselves by winning silverware.

"I keep saying you can only judge teams at the end of the season when you see how much the team achieve," Cech told ESPN.

"Because in this moment we have been doing remarkably well but we have no trophy in our hands. So let's see what's going to be the case at the end of the season."

"Obviously this team has the potential and the quality to become one of the best teams in the Chelsea history if it proves by winning the trophies."

However, the Czech Republic goalkeeper insists that the Blues will be aiming to win every trophy.

"We try to win every game then let's see what it's going to bring us. We want to win as many games as possible, as many competitions as possible," he added. "But football is football, it is difficult to know how many of them you can actually manage to win."

Meanwhile, Cech, who suffered a collision with Kurt Zouma during Chelsea's 3-1 win over Derby County, believes that his padded head gear prevented both of them from sustaining serious injuries.

"It was lucky he hit my helmet because the impact would have been much bigger," the 32-year-old told the Daily Mail. "I think the helmet saved him – me as well – because he hit most of the helmet and took away a little bit of the impact."

"He's fine. The medical staff did really well to assess the situation. In this kind of clash you never know. He did not look so good to continue."
