Chelsea keeper Cech shrugs off latest heavy knock

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech says his clash with Fulham striker Orlando Sa won't put him off.

Last month Cech suffered an injury to his right knee after coming for a cross and falling awkwardly in training.

Despite the bumps, Cech, 29, is determined to keep putting his body on the line. He said: "What can I say? This is football and things like that happen. I'm unfortunate that I always get a nice knock with a nice scar.

"When I played again after my first injury I said if I need to put my head somewhere I will do it. It's part of the game.

"One day if I feel the fear of putting my head in the middle of some battle or scrum, then I stop. But so far I haven't felt that."
