Petr Cech urges his Chelsea teammates to make history and win the Europa League this season.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has called on his teammates to make history and win the Europa League.

The Blues, who travel to Sparta Prague for the first leg of their last-32 tie on Thursday, have the chance to become one of only a handful of clubs to win the Champions League, the Europa League and the Cup Winners' Cup if they triumph in this year's competition.

"It's not great that we're playing in the Europa League, but we are now involved and we have the chance to win a ­competition the club has never won," Cech is quoted as saying by The Mirror.

"We can win it and become one of the teams who have won every competition - it is an opportunity to make history."

Cech spent the early part of his career with Sparta Prague before a move to Rennes in 2002.
