CONFIRMED: Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid lineups – Jose names five defenders!

Chelsea face La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid this evening, with a place in the Champions League final at stake.


The tie is delicately poised after the pair played out a 0-0 draw last week in the Spanish capital, and the Blues will be looking to keep up their good form of late with victory at Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid already through to the showpiece final in Lisbon following their stunning 5-0 aggregate win over holders Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho named a decidedly unorthodox first XI, with five defenders on the team-sheet. It remains to be seen whether Cesar Azpilicueta or Ashely Cole will start on the wing for the Blues, or is Jose plumping for a five-man midfield?

Here are the confirmed Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid lineups:

Chelsea: Schwarzer, Ivanović, Cole, David Luiz, Ramires, Torres, Hazard, Willian, Cahill, Terry, Azpilucueta

Subs: Oscar, Schürrle, van Ginkel, Ba, Eto’o, Kalas, Hilário

Atletico Madrid: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe Luis; Mario Suarez, Tiago; Adrian, Koke, Arda; Diego Costa

Subs: Aranzubia, Raúl García, Villa, Rodríguez, Alderweireld, Sosa, Diego
