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

The defender fractured his arm 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 is expected to start, while club captain Gary Cahill could return in defence for Chelsea, whose only injury absentee is midfielder Danny Drinkwater (calf).

Chelsea 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.
