Chelsea take on Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge tomorrow night in the second leg of their Champions League semi final. Here is the latest team news and a predicted line-up.

Jose Mourinho confirmed at his pre-match press conference this afternoon that John Terry is fit to start after recovering from the ankle knock he suffered in last weeks first leg in Spain.

The skipper will come back into the side alongside Gary Cahill – who was rested for Sunday’s 2-0 win over Liverpool – with Ashley Cole the one likely to make-way despite his impressive display at Anfield.

Petr Cech trained this afternoon but Mourinho hinted he won’t be fit enough to start, so Mark Schwarzer is likely to keep his place in goal. David Luiz and Ramires are also expected to start in midfield with Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel suspended, while Nemanja Matic is ineligible.

Eden Hazard is expected to return to the side after training on Monday and the Belgian could line-up alongside Oscar and Willian in attack behind Fernando Torres, who is favourite to start up front against his former side.

Here’s the team we think Mourinho will do with:

      Cole can cause some mistakes there. JT is good option.

    D line-up is fine by me.chelsea have to be wary of counter-attack from dis at.madrid side.they are good bt i tip chelsea to progress by 2 -1 goals margin.

    The choice of the coach is mine. Every one in d word knows Dat Jose morinho is very experience interms of this knockout games so let’s all chelsea fans worldwide respect his selections and which him well .but my concrete advice is that chelsea shouldn’t be in rush to score goal bcos Dat can brings counter attack

    I think d line up will be same bt a little change; Hazard will come 4rm d middle,william 4rm d right,schurlee @ d Left and I think Eto’o willl start since he always scores in big games @ d bridge and Fernando Torres’s start in d first leg was fruitless !

    Never abuse any Chelsea fans until when you have crossed the bridge, Chelsea should suprise those who want our downfall without any cause, we are the team that so much believe in ‘when the land is rough, we go by air’ so, we are capable of beating any team in the world and we fear no foes.

    I know with the tactical experience of the Special one, , I’m rest assured that we are one step forward to Lisbon, ,,,, we don’t have no worries of getting to the final because A-Madrid is no equal to us base on our defensive and cutting tactics, ,,,,, Come on! Come on!! Cooommee onnnnn!!! Might Blues, ,,,, today is our daaayyyy,
