Jose Mourinho's back on press conference duties, although he's clearly not happy about it. The Chelsea manager is grumpy with both the press -- he humiliated some poor hack who asked a stupid question about Atletico Madrid's schedule -- and the FA ("If you want a better press conference, speak with the FA, not me"), who charged him for calling Mike Dean 'fantastic', and so he was monumentally terse. All of which was pretty great.
We did get some news out of him, though:
Jose: 'Hazard is out for Sunday's game, I don't think he will make Wednesday but let's wait.' #CFC

Note that I didn't say good news...
Mourinho on Terry: "He doesn't make this weekend and I don't think next week, but let's wait."

It's like a mad libs press conference. Still, that's technically an injury update -- Mourinho says neither John Terry nor Eden Hazard are likely to be fit for the second leg against Atleti, which is obviously not great but could just involve him playing fun games on Diego Simeone. And so we wait for Wednesday...
Oh, and Samuel Eto'o is out for Liverpool too. We'll be fielding a weakened team essentially by default.
