Jose Mourinho has started Petr Cech in goal in Chelsea's friendly against Fenerbahce.
Mourinho has played both Cech and Thibaut Courtois in pre-season and all signs are pointing to a competition that lasts until the beginning of the season. Mourinho is taking his time in making a choice for who will be his number one goalkeeper this year and in process is raising the stock of both of his goalkeepers. We find it unlikely that both keepers will be on Chelsea's roster this year, but whoever wins this battle will have extremely high fantasy value. Aug 8 - 3:17 PM

Petr Cech started for the first time since suffering a shoulder injury at the end of the last year.

Cech started in Chelsea's friendly against Austrian side WAC RZ Pellets and appeared healthy. There is uncertainty at the position this year as Chelsea have brought back youngster Thibaut Courtois who was on loan for the past two seasons. Courtois has repeatedly stated he wants playing time but Petr Cech is still in his prime so it's unknown what Chelsea will do. The two most likely options are loaning out Courtois or selling Cech to a club outside of the Premier League. Whoever ends up with the job will be an immediate candidate for top fantasy goalkeeper this season.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has been contacted by French clubs Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.

Cech's agent insists that the goalkeeper wants to remain at Chelsea but the Blues have a big choice to make as youngster Thibaut Courtois is demanding playing time. If Chelsea decide to go with Courtois as their number one, Petr Cech will likely be sold as he is too good to be a backup. At 32 years of age, the Czech goalkeeper has a few years left to play at a top level. Chelsea's goalkeeper position has huge fantasy upside and we will update you as we find out more about one of the summer's biggest fantasy headlines.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has stated that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will return to the club this summer after a two-year loan at Atletico Madrid.

Courtois has stated multiple times that he demands playing time so it seems Petr Cech's time as Chelsea's number one goalkeeper might be over. Cech is still one of the world's best goalkeepers so it will be interesting to see if he ends up leaving Chelsea or if he stays to play backup to young star Courtois. We will know more once training begins in late July - early August so make sure you check back before you draft either of these goalkeepers.

Petr Cech underwent successful surgery on his dislocated shoulder and will miss 8 to 10 weeks.

Cech dislocated his shoulder in Chelsea's Champions League match and had to undergo surgery to repair the damage. He is expected to be out until mid July and should be fully fit for the beginning of next season. His home country is not in the World Cup, so Cech will have the entire summer to rehab and get fit. The problem with Cech is that Chelsea may choose to go with their young star Thibaut Courtois next season, in which case Cech may choose to leave the Premier League or be a backup for the Blues. Check back at the beginning of next season for an update.

Petr Cech is improving but is expected to miss Chelsea's home match against Norwich this weekend.

The Chelsea goalkeeper is improving from his dislocated shoulder but is ruled out of the Norwich clash. With Chelsea practically out of the title race, it's unlikely they'll risk him by playing him in the final two matches of the season. In his absence, Mark Schwarzer will start and is a great fantasy option for the week despite only playing one game. Norwich are the worst away team in the league and are unlikely to give Chelsea many problems.

Petr Cech will miss the remainder of the season with a dislocated shoulder.

Cech was injured in Chelsea's 0-0 draw against Atletico Madrid and had to be replaced by Mark Schwarzer halfway through the first half. This is a huge loss to Chelsea, who now have to face Liverpool and Atletico Madrid within the next seven days without their number one goalkeeper. Mark Schwarzer will have to step up, but he is well past his prime and is mediocre at best. Schwarzer is not a recommended choice for this weekend but can be a very good option for fantasy managers during Chelsea's last two games of the season.

Chelsea have drawn Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.

The other match will see Real Madrid face Bayern Munich. The draw is a favorable one for Chelsea as Atletico are likely the least dangerous team out of the three. With that being said, they are still a very good side, one that just knocked off Barcelona in the quarter-finals. The big story line around this match is whether Atletico Madrid will be able to play their goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. Courtiois is in Madrid on loan from Chelsea and there are conflicting reports about his ability to feature against his home club.

Jose Mourinho has insisted that Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will be returning to Chelsea next summer to compete for a starting spot with Petr Cech.

Courtois has been loaned out to Atletico Madrid since he was first acquired from Chelsea and the goalkeeper has developed into one of the best in the world. This could mean the era of Petr Cech is over at the end of this year, so enjoy him while you can. If Courtois does indeed stay at Chelsea next year, he will be one of the league's top goalkeepers for years to come. He should be one of the first goalkeepers drafted in dynasty leagues.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is supposed to meet with the club soon so the two sides can discuss his future.

Courtois is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid but with Petr Cech over the 30 year mark, Chelsea have to think about the future. The problem is that Cech is still one of the best goalkeepers as of today and Courtois has made it clear that he won't sit on a bench behind him. Chelsea will have to find a way to please the 21-year-old as he is one of the best young goalkeepers in the world and can be an important part of their future. As for now, continue to use Petr Cech as usual. His value will not be affected this season.

Chelsea backup goalkeeper Hilario has signed a one year contract to stay at Chelsea.

Hilario is a backup keeper and in no way threatening of Petr Cech. He is among four Chelsea keepers in the squad: Cech, Mark Schwarzer, and Jamal Blackman. Expect him to be second or third string. If Cech goes down with an injury, Hilario might be a good fantasy option considering Chelsea's stellar defense.
