Three fit but one`s not!

As we approach what many feel is the most important game of our season, a Champions League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid. At Stamford Bridge, we have some news relating to several key players who have been suffering from injuries.

It would appear that the foot / ankle injury John Terry picked up in the first leg, an injury that was supposed to keep him out for the remainder of the season, has reacted fantastically well to the treatment given by the medical staff and we fully expect JT to start, tonight, at the heart of our defence.

Eden Hazard, who hasn`t played since the opening minutes of the quarter-final second leg, against Paris St Germain, is also reported as being fit and, given the importance of the fixture tonight, we`d be very surprised if he didn`t start.

Samuel Eto`o, another who has missed a couple of games, has also been declared fit which will be a welcome bonus when you consider all his goals for Chelsea have been scored at Stamford Bridge.

However Petr Cech, who ran out for training at Cobham yesterday, pulled a fast one on punters who accepted his jibe that he would be fit to play, he won`t.

Eden Hazard is the key , methinks , to unlocking this miserly AM defense & perhaps thereby opening the way for more

If we score first, we'll probably win.

All of these players seems very important to us in they position they play. It would have a been a big delight to have them all fit. Good thing is we have a very good back up keeper and can fill in for cech appropriately. #UptheChels
