Chelsea vs. Atletico Madrid, Champions League: Lineups & Game Thread

Mike Hewitt

"We play at home but a draw with goals is good for them and not good for us. You cannot say which one has the advantage. Everything is very balanced."

"We have to enjoy it and the players have to be the same. A match is a match but there are some matches that are special matches. The match that every player wants to play is the Champions League final, but after the Champions League final the next match is the second leg of the Champions League semi-final."

"After the game let's see if we go to Lisbon or not. I will go for sure - in the summer! Let's see if we go together."

Clear eyes.  Full hearts.

Where the hell are Ashley Cole / Cesar Azpilicueta going to play?  Your guess is as good as mine.

COME ON CHELSEA!
