John Terry’s injury sustained at the Vicente Calderon was apparently going to keep him out until the Champions League final, although it appears that the Chelsea captain could be passed fit for Wednesday’s semi-final clash.
Mourinho will be pleased that Terry has an eight-day recovery period for his ankle injury, even if Petr Cech is missing for the match, while Branislav Ivanovic and Frank Lampard are suspended for the clash.
Chelsea’s big game mentality was there for all to see at Anfield, with the Blues soaking up pressure before scoring twice on the break and they look a decent shout at even money to progress to the Champions League final at the expense of Atletico.
Sure enough, the first leg finishing goalless potentially puts Madrid in the driving seat although the Blues have come from 3-1 down to knock out PSG and will feel confident of winning in ninety minutes against the Spanish league leaders.
Eden Hazard should return to the fray and the Belgian can help Chelsea through to the Lisbon final where they will meet the winner of the Real Madrid v Bayern Munich tie.
