Cech, Hazard and Terry return to training ahead of Atletico clash
Chelsea captain John Terry, goalkeeper Petr Cech and attackers Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto'o all took part in training ahead of Wednesday's Champions League semifinal second leg clash with Atletico Madrid.

Terry and Cech both picked up knocks in the first leg at Vicente Calderon and neither player was expected to play again this season, with the Czech international diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder.

Hazard, meanwhile, picked up a a hamstring injury in the quarterfinal against Paris Saint-Germain, a match the Blues would go on to win despite the Belgian's early withdrawal, while Eto'o has featured sporadically due to an ongoing knee problem.

But all four players were on the training field at Chelsea's Cobham base on Tuesday morning and took part in fitness drills, though it remains to be seen whether they are in contention for a place in the squad to face Atleti on Wednesday.

Though he joined in with the fitness exercises, Cech did not accompany Hilario and Mark Schwarzer as the two goalkeepers were put though their paces.

The Australian shot stopper, fresh from a clean sheet at Anfield, is still expected to start against the Liga leader.
