Chelsea's Hazard, Cech train ahead of Atletico clash

5:43 am on 30 April 2014

Chelsea were handed a quadruple fitness boost ahead of tomorrow's Champions League football semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid with Eden Hazard, Petr Cech, John Terry and Samuel Eto'o all taking part in training.

Midfielder Hazard, named the English young player of the year, and forward Eto'o missed the 0-0 first-leg draw with calf and knee problems respectively, while goalkeeper Cech and defender Terry went off injured at the Vicente Calderon.

The return of the creative Hazard after three weeks on the sidelines would be a major boost given the defensive nature of the first leg in which both sides failed to score.

Cech was initially expected to be out for the rest of the season after damaging his shoulder and Terry suffered a twisted ankle.
