LONDON: Petr Cech is ready to give Chelsea a boost after he predicted he will be back in action sooner than the original timescale. Cech was ruled out for a month on August 18 after he suffered a knee injury in training. The goal-keeper is already claiming he will return inside that time frame. The timing of Cech's comeback is critical, with Manchester United scheduled for September 18. "The rehabilitation is going according to plan," said Cech. "I don't want to jinx anything but it seems that I should be ready to return to action inside the original timescale.
