Chelsea’s goalkeeper Petr Cech underwent surgery for a depressed fracture of the skull after being knocked unconscious in Chelsea’s victory at Reading on Saturday.
Cech was injured in a first-minute collision with Stephen Hunt at the Madejski Stadium, whose boot caught Cech on the head when he went to collect the ball. Later on in the injury time, Carlo Cudicini, the replacement goalkeeper was also knocked out following a collision with Ibrahima Sonko. What a shock! The game was held up for nearly 10 minutes as Cudicini received treatment and he was carried off with his neck in a brace, wearing an oxygen mask.
Its been a long time to watch such a furious game from Chelsea. Essien was out of the game just after half time after being booked with 2 yellow cards. The game went on with 10 men against Reading’s 11. Since the 2 goalkeepers were out of the game, so who replaced the position then??
Its the Chelsea’s captain, John Terry!~ I bet you won’t see this much in the whole EPL season. Chelsea claimed a 1-0 win after a deflected free-kick by Frank Lampard in the first half. Lucky day for Lampard, disastrous for the 2 keepers~
