Chelsea coach Avram Grant faces a Christmas injury crisis he hopes will not wreck his team´s bid for the Premier League title.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech limped out of the Blues´ 1-0 win at Blackburn - courtesy of a 22nd-minute strike from Joe Cole - with a side strain, joining captain John Terry and striker Didier Drogba on the sidelines.

"We will know the situation with Petr tomorrow when he goes for scans," confirmed Grant, who also has reserve Carlo Cudicini out for a few days with a rib injury sustained in training.
