Cech was left on the bench in Monday night's opening Premier League win at Burnley, when Belgian World Cup goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was selected ahead of him.

Courtois, 22, had a fine game as Chelsea won 3-1, and afterwards Mourinho - who kept his selection a secret right up until the day of the game - said he had taken his decision dispassionately, and was looking to the future for Chelsea.

Cech has so far had no talks with Mourinho about his future and will look for assurances from the Portuguese in the next few days about where exactly he stands.
