Here’s how we reckon the Blues will line up today against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-final…
GK) Petr Cech
Cech is an automatic starter in the Blues goal, and although he missed Saturday’s Premier League defeat to Sunderland with an illness, he should be back available for this evening.
DR) Cesar Azpilicueta
With Branislav Ivanovic suspended, natural right-back Azpilicueta could move over and cover the powerful Serb. This means his spot in the side at left-back will be open for Ashley Cole to come in and play.
DC) John Terry
The Englishman can expect a tough battle with Spanish forward Diego Costa, one of Europe’s most lethal marksmen this season.
DC) Gary Cahill
Cahill and John Terry have the central defensive spots secured. With Nemanja Matic cup-tied the other centre-half, David Luiz, can come into the side in the anchorman role.
DL) Ashley Cole
Cole could come back into the side for his first start in quite a while. He has a wealth of Champions League experience, and is unlikely to let anyone down.
