Petr Cech: Suffered a groin injury in the 40th minute of Chelsea's win over

The goalkeeper was forced off at half-time in his side's eventual 2-1 win at Goodison Park on Sunday after suffering from pain in his groin.

Chelsea have since confirmed Cech is to have further assessment on Monday after sustaining a "strained adductor muscle at the top of his leg".

And the Czech is hoping for a positive result from the scans, as he told his official website: "I think it was in 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."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
