Chelsea FC: 4 Objectives to a Blues Victory over Atletico Madrid
Kirsty Wigglesworth/Associated Press

Other than dealing with the Football Association, Jose Mourinho has had a prodigious last 72 hours.

Sunday's victory at Anfield kept Chelsea's Premier League hopes alive and Petr Cech, John Terry, Samuel Eto'o and Eden Hazard resuming their first-team training (h/t Goal) is sure to bring a grin to the Portuguese's face.

Yet, the manager’s smile would not have lasted too long, as there are still at least 90 minutes left to navigate in this season's UEFA Champions League campaign.

The first leg of the semi-final highlighted Chelsea and Atletico Madrid's ability to defend and one might easily surmise more of the same is impending at Stamford Bridge.

Neither side will want to concede but—in the same breath—neither side will be craving an extra 30 minutes and/or penalty-kicks, either.

The Blues, elevated off their Merseyside triumph, will exude confidence at the Bridge and will need all their collective faculties about them to reach the cup final in Lisbon, Portugal on 24 May.

What then does Mourinho's side need to complete to reach their aspiration of silverware?

Glad you asked...
