David Luiz to get the nod

Defender David Luiz is expected to play for Chelsea at Atletico Madrid in Wednesday's Champions League clash despite a broken wrist.

Luiz suffered the injury in the Premier League encounter against Arsenal, when he was also sent off to incur a three-match ban which expires after Saturday's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Playmaker Eden Hazard has been tipped to start, winger Pedro is a doubt with a minor undisclosed issue, while club captain Gary Cahill could return to the heart of the defence for the Blues, whose only definite injury absentee is midfielder Danny Drinkwater (calf).

Provisional squad: Courtois, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Fabregas, Kante, Morata, Hazard, Pedro, Bakayoko, Moses, Kenedy, Musonda, Zappacosta, Willian, Batshuayi, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Clarke-Salter, Scott, Eduardo.
