Chelsea fans react after official club Twitter names Cech in starting XI
By Matt Bullin
Chelsea fans have mocked their club’s Twitter account after it named Petr Cech in the starting line-up for their match v Everton on Sunday afternoon.
The former Chelsea goalkeeper, who now plies his trade at Arsenal, was named in the starting line-up instead of Thibaut Courtois, until the club quickly deleted the Tweet.
Cech played at Stamford Bridge for nine years and made almost 500 appearances in all competitions, prior to his move across London in the summer of 2015.
The 34-year-old was part of four Premier League winning sides while at Chelsea, and he also won four FA Cups and a Champions League during his time there.
Since moving to Arsenal he has cemented his position at number one, and has made 31 league and cup appearances this term, keeping 10 clean sheets.

Chelsea travel to Everton hoping to extend their lead at the top of the league to seven points.
Meanwhile Everton will be hoping to leap frog, Cech’s current club, with a victory at Goodison Park.
The Tweet including the mistake was only live for seconds but a number of eagle-eyed Blues supporters saw it and reacted on Twitter.
Here is a selection of their Tweets:
