Petr Cech hopes that a break from football will help him recover from an ongoing elbow injury.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is hopeful that a short break from football will help his elbow injury.

The 30-year-old has long been suffering from chronic elbow issues but still starred in the Blues' 2-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Londoners have an agreement with the Czech Republic national side that Cech won't play in his country's friendly matches later this month, and the keeper is hopeful that this will help his recovery.

"I hope it will alleviate that anyway because I've been playing with that for years and nearly always managed to stay on top of it," said Cech.

"So, I hope it's going to be the case again for the coming years.

"Not to travel with the national team and not to play more games, it can be helpful and that's why, when I spoke with the national team, I got that option."

The injury could require Cech to undergo surgery next summer.
