Petr Cech was able to laugh off his latest injury scare after breaking his nose in Chelsea's 1-0 win against Blackburn.
Frank Lampard scored the only goal of the game on 51 minutes with a low header from Branislav Ivanovich's cross, although the first-half injury to Cech was the main talking point before the England international's goal.
"We'll see how it turns out. If I were to start, then it would only be while wearing a mask. I already wear a headgear and I think that I would look like Batman," said Cech post-match.
"I don't want to make any prognosis. Let's wait and see what the doctors say."
The 29-year-old wears a head-guard after a collision with Stephen Hunt against Reading at the Madejski Stadium in October 2006, and was braced for the latest impact as Yakubu and Ashley Cole challenged in-front of him.
"Yakubu was approaching me. I stopped him from scoring but Ashley Cole inadvertently hit me. I thought I would have to be substituted, that was why I gestured towards our bench to prepare the substitution," he recalled.
"But then they fixed it as best as they could in that situation and somehow I finished the match.
"I'm glad to have made another two saves and this is a very important win. I'm also pleased with the clean sheet."
Andre Villas-Boas was understandably delighted to claim a vital victory, and hailed the bravery of his goalkeeper despite some late pressure from Steve Kean's side at Ewood Park.
"What can I say about Petr? He hung on bravely with a broken nose. He's very injury prone in football and all sorts of things have happened to him," said the manager.
"We have come to a difficult place and got the points we wanted. Hopefully we can build on this."
