Chelsea play host to Atletico Madrid for the second leg round of 16 Champions League clash at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will be without the suspended Mason Mount and Jorginho for the tie against Diego Simeone’s side after the pair picked up an accumulation of three bookings in the competition.

Chelsea hold the advantage into the second leg, courtesy of an Olivier Giroud goal away from home in the first leg with a stunning bicycle kick to put Chelsea in front.

Chelsea have enough options in midfield to replace Mount and Jorginho, with Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz as two worthy options.

Meanwhile, Diego Simeone was glad to welcome back Jan Oblak for their league game against Getafe, and he’s glad that the experienced goalkeeper will be in goal against Chelsea.
