Petr Cech was substituted at half-time in yesterday’s 2-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park because of injury, and the Chelsea no.1 is expected to miss the Chelsea versus QPR tie on Wednesday.
Petr Cech is undergoing tests today to understand the full extent of his injury, with a short spell on the sidelines expected.
Cech was forced off at half-time, being replaced by Ross Turnball, after feeling pain caused by a “strained adductor muscle at the top of his leg”.
Yesterday, Cech explained: “I think it was in the 40th minute when I was punching the ball away and when I jumped, I felt pain in my right groin.
“I finished the half knowing I would not be able to continue after the break. We will see how serious it is. We will know more after the medical check that I undergo tomorrow.”
The Czech goalkeeper will be joining John Terry on the sidelines. The club captain has been out since the Liverpool clash in November 11, when a coming together with Luis Suarez caused the centre-back’s knee to give way. Terry was initailly expected back before the World Club Cup, but has suffered various set-backs. JT is expected back soon, but will not risk rushing him back.
