Robinho under pressure - Cech

Chelsea will be out to prove a point to Manchester City's £32million man Robinho when they travel to Eastlands tomorrow, according to goalkeeper Petr Cech.

The 24-year-old Brazilian was a long-term target for the west London club but instead opted for a shock transfer deadline day switch to Manchester City - now backed by the billions of the Abu Dhabi United Group.

The two Barclays Premier League big spenders will go head to head in tomorrow afternoon's late kick-off and Chelsea are determined to show Robinho - who had publicly stated his desire to move to Stamford Bridge, only to suddenly have a late change of heart - just what he missed out on.

''In the morning he says he loves Chelsea and he wants to be part of Chelsea, and then a few hours later he signs for another club, but it was his decision,'' Cech said.

''He needs to play well for Manchester City and we want to show him on Saturday he made a decision that is not perfect for him really.

''He is a great player and the sort of player who can entertain people so for the Premier League maybe he is good - but we will see how he is going to cope with the pressure now.''

Manager Luiz Felipe Scolari will hope all of his returning internationals are fit after losing combative midfielder Michael Essien for up to six months on the sidelines after sustaining a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament while away with Ghana.

Cech said: ''It is a blow because he has been a great player for us since he came, but we have a large squad and we need to cope with that.

''I wish him a speedy recovery because we will all need him.''

Joe Cole is expected to be available despite needing stitches to a head wound suffered during England's 4-1 win in Croatia on Wednesday night.

John Obi Mikel is hoping to return from a leg problem to fill in for Essien, while striker Didier Drogba could be in line for a first appearance of the season after a knee injury.

Defender Ashley Cole was also part of the Chelsea quintet away with England, as was skipper John Terry, Frank Lampard and Wayne Bridge

He told Chelsea TV: ''It is good to be back after two good results and hopefully we can look forward to the Man City game.

''We have not been away for 10 days with England in a long time so you get used to each other more.

''Previous games we had been nervous, but I don't think anyone was nervous for this one.

''We had a point to prove and I think we did it.''

Cole added: ''What happened to Joe was a little bit scary - but I am glad to see he is all right now.''

Chelsea head into a tough run of fixtures with the opening of the Champions League group at home to Bordeaux which will be followed by a Stamford Bridge date against champions Manchester United on September 21.
