Petr Cech was confident losing John Terry for another extended spell would not derail Chelsea's season as the club waited to discover the full extent of their captain's knee injury.

Terry was due in hospital on Monday morning to undergo an MRI scan after his latest comeback ended in agony during Sunday's 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw with Liverpool. Reports suggest Chelsea's medical staff were optimistic the injury would not prove as bad as it initially appeared.

Goalkeeper Cech, who has become Chelsea's de facto captain in the absence of Terry and Frank Lampard, said: "We managed to play games without him and we have players who will have a chance to impress. I have confidence. Obviously, it's a pity we will lose him again but we have a large squad and quality defenders to deal with that."
