Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech questions whether Liverpool can handle pressure of the Premier League title run-in.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has tried to heap pressure on Liverpool by questioning whether they can handle the heat of a title run-in.

The Reds beat Manchester City 3-2 on Sunday to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League, before the Blues overcame Swansea City 1-0 later that day.

The two teams meet at Anfield a week on Sunday, and Cech has tried to stoke the fire ahead of the potentially title-deciding clash.

He told The Mirror: "We have players who played in big games and that's going to be a help for the next matches. Of course, in football you never know.

"Sometimes when you have a young team they don't feel any pressure they just play. No one expected anything from Liverpool and they're in contention – that's why they've played without pressure so far.

"But let's see how they're going to cope when it comes to the last hurdle. They will have to jump it. Yes, they have been doing remarkable well but we have things in our hands as well."

Liverpool have won their last 10 games.
