The 30-year-old suffered the problem in the 2-1 win at Goodison Park.

It enabled back-up keeper Ross Turnbull to step in for Wednesday's 1-0 home defeat by QPR in only his fifth Premier League game for the Blues.

In a club tweet, manager Rafa Benitez provided a medical update on Cech, saying: "Two or three weeks. We are quite optimistic."
