See what happened when Petr Cech made his surprise return for Chelsea U23's against Tottenham

All eyes were on Petr Cech after it was revealed over the weekend that the veteran Chelsea legend would make a shock return to football at Kingsmeadow on Monday because Chelsea did not want their academy goalkeeper, Lucas Bergstrom to play two matches in 48 hours after he played for Chelsea's U-18 on Saturday. 

As a result, Petr Cech was included in Chelsea's U-23 match day squad together with Former Leicester and forgotten Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater against Spurs U-23.

It was an interested night for the 38 years old Petr Cech. After 17 minutes of play, Cech faced two shots and conceded two goals. The first shot was a blunder from Cech when he attempt to play out from back which made him kick the ball out for a corner. 

Petr Cech and Blues Under-23 night went from bad to worst when Totthenham Darren scarlett headed a brilliant cross from close range to double their lead at Kingsmeadow. 

Luckily for the Blues youngsters, they fought back from two goals deficit down in the second half to win 3-2 at full time. Myles Peart-Harris scored a brace and Marcel Lewis had a goal. 

There was no clean sheet for Petr Cech as he continue to remain at Chelsea as non-contract player, providing emergency cover for E. Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, and Willy Cabellaro.
