Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed Eden Hazard will feature in his side's Champions League semi-final encounter against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.

Hazard has not played since limping off against Paris Saint-Germain in his side's quarter-final second leg tie.

The 23-year-old has had to sit out Chelsea's last four games due to the knock - but has recovered in time to face Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho, speaking in the build up to his side's clash against the current La Liga leaders, said on the former Lille man: "Hazard is ready, it's my decision if he starts but he's ready."

News of Hazard's return to full fitness will be music to the Portuguese tactician's ears as the Belgium international has played a major role in Chelsea's progression to the latter stages of Europe's most prestigious competition.

Hazard bagged a goal in Chelsea's first leg tie in Paris which helped to keep the Blues' Champions League dream alive.

Chelsea go into tomorrow's tie on the back of a goalless draw against Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon - which has left the two-legged tie on tenterhooks.
