Hilario, 35, will now spend a sixth season at Stamford Bridge, having made 33 starts and four substitute appearances in his role as understudy to Petr Cech.

The Portuguese's contract would have run out this summer but he has chosen to extend it, despite the fact that he only played one game last season: the Community Shield match against Manchester United at Wembley.
