The ‘keeper’s howler let the Baggies take a 1-2 lead.
In one of many shock Premier League results at the weekend Chelsea drew 2-2 at home with West Bromwich Albion and then only after a last minute penalty.
Goalkeeper Petr Cech allowed Stephane Sessegnon to score the away side’s second after slipping and then letting the shot wriggle out of the 31-year-old’s arms and into the net.
The Czech Republic No.1 has admitted that the mistake was solely his own and has taken full responsibility.
“There was no indication of us not winning,” Cech told his personal website.
“However, shortly after the interval we conceded a cheap goal from a corner.
“Then we let them go 2-1 up because of my mistake. I lost my footing on the pitch and then I failed to react to the shot properly. It was a cheap goal to concede.
“One point is better than nothing, but that doesn’t change the fact that we should have won and put the advantage of playing at home to good use.”
The unexpected draw has left the Blues on 21 points and fourth in the league, four points behind leaders Arsenal who lost at Manchester United.
Cech has been one of the most reliable ‘keepers in the division since arriving at the club a little over nine years ago and manager Jose Mourinho is unlikely to be too concerned by this blunder.
It does mean that the division has become very open once again though, with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City also losing at the weekend.
