Playmaker Eden Hazard is likely to continue as a substitute after only recently returning from a broken ankle.

'Remember before winning a competition you need to work very hard and improve every year step by step, and arrive then to be ready for Real Madrid or Bayern Munich or Juventus.

Conte also confirmed that he will be rotating his squad for the clash against Qarabag which makes a lot of sense especially as Chelsea will be playing host to Arsenal on Sunday.

Conte had created a potent mix by adding Argentine forward Carlos Tevez and Spanish striker Fernando Llorente to a team bolstered by the emergence of Paul Pogba. A look at betting odds at betting sites such as netbet.co.uk shows Chelsea is odds on to win this game and rightly so.

Eden Hazard has confessed that he "hated" watching the Champions League on Television last season and is now desperate to win the trophy for the first time with Chelsea. "The risk could be to play with the same players I did against Leicester and then the question would be: why didn't you change the team?"

It was an uncomfortable introduction to the Champions League group stage for Qarabag, the defensively feeble Azerbaijan champions who first conceded after five minutes when Pedro Rodriguez bent the ball past Sehic.


"But in terms of the effort and commitment of the players so far I am very happy".

Danny Drinkwater is the only injury doubt for the game.

Premier League or Champions League? You know very well that I love our fans, because they push us a lot during the game.

The Azerbaijani champions are making their Champions League debut. We are starting a path and it will be very important to start building something important.

Club coach agrees with this assertion made about Kante who was named PFA and Football Writers Association Player of the Year last season after his fine display helped Conte clinch the title at the first time of asking.

Chelsea will support criminal prosecutions and take the "strongest possible action" if any supporters are found to have used anti-Semitic language. We have to only focus on the pitch and try to do our best.
