Liverpool fans are rather excited that Petr Cech looks unlikely to play at Anfield
After missing Chelsea’s defeat to Sunderland on Saturday, the last thing Jose Mourinho needed in a tough clash at Atletico Madrid, was to lose goalkeeper Petr Cech to injury.
But, in the 18th minute disaster struck as David Luiz pushed Raul Garcia into the Chelsea number one who left the pitch clutching his shoulder and arm on the left side.
There are also suggestions Cech may have damaged his ribs.
Whilst many concentrated on the irony that Cech could not be replaced by another Chelsea goalkeeepr, on the Vicente Calderon pitch, in Thibaut Courtois, Liverpool fans were celebrating.
After all, it looks almost certain that Cech won’t be playing at Anfield on Sunday.
Which, as Sunderland proved, should give Liverpool another advantage as they bid for the Premier League title.
Cech out. Schwarzer in goal for Sunday please…

I don't see why Liverpool can't hammer Chelsea on Sunday, no Cech, possibly no Ramires and they'll have one eye on next Wednesday. #LFC

Sad for Petr Cech on his injury. That hurts every football fan to see him get another blow. But I think it's a good boost for Liverpool
