Team News: Eden Hazard starts for Chelsea against Atletico Madrid

Eden Hazard returns to the Chelsea lineup for the first time in almost a month in tonight's Champions League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid.

Eden Hazard is back in the Chelsea starting lineup for tonight's Champions League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid.

The Belgian has been out of action for the Blues since the quarter-final second leg against Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.

Hazard's return is one of three changes made by Chelsea from last week's goalless first leg in the Spanish capital.

Mark Schwarzer comes in for the injured Petr Cech while Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel are suspended.

Jose Mourinho has picked six defenders tonight, with Cesar Azpilicueta seemingly starting in a more advanced position than his usual full-back slot.

Visitors Atletico, meanwhile, have also made three changes to the side that were held by Mourinho's men last week.

Captain Gabi is suspended and replaced by Tiago in midfield, while Raul Garcia and Diego drop to the bench for Adrian Lopez and Arda Turan.

Chelsea: Schwarzer; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole; David Luiz, Ramires; Azpilicueta, Willian, Hazard; Torres
Subs: Hilario, Kalas, Oscar, Van Ginkel, Schurrle, Ba, Eto'o

Atletico: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe Luis; Mario Suarez, Tiago; Adrian, Koke, Arda; Diego Costa
Subs: Aranzubia, Alderweireld, Garcia, Rodriguez, Jose Sosa, Diego, Villa
