Petr Cech could feature in Chelsea’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid after taking part in training on Tuesday.

The goalkeeper’s season appeared to have been brought to a premature end after he was injured in the semi-final, first leg goalless draw at the Vicente Calderon.

Cech went off after 18 minutes with a shoulder injury and captain John Terry departed after 72 minutes with a foot problem.

Cech was injured as he punched the ball from underneath his own crossbar, with David Luiz pushing Raul Garcia into the Chelsea goalkeeper, who hit the ground with a thud and was replaced by Mark Schwarzer.

It was later revealed that he had dislocated his shoulder.

At the time, Jose Mourinho said: “Petr Cech’s season over. Don’t ask me technically, but season over.”
