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."

The news will not be welcome at Stamford Bridge after the loss to the league's bottom side meant the gap on leaders Manchester United remained at 14 points, although Chelsea have a game in hand.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
