Chelsea crush debutants Qarabag on return to Europe

Hazard It’s Time For Chelsea To Win The Champions League Again

Conte underlines Kante's importance to team

Bakayoko is hoping that contest will represent the first step in a trophy-winning quest for Chelsea, with the £40 million summer signing prepared to favour continental competition over domestic endeavours.

"It was a good start for us". It's always been my dream to play in the Champions League and win it.

Qarabag beat the champions of Georgia, Moldova and Denmark to become the first Azerbaijan side to reach the Champions League group stages.

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has admitted his delight at getting on the scoresheet during his side's 6-0 thrashing of Qarabag in the Champions League last night.

Goals from Pedro, Zappacosta, Azpilicueta were more than enough to get Chelsea the three Champions League points tonight against Qarabag, who posed very little threat throughout.

And on the possibility of Eden Hazard playing against Arsenal in the Premier League after being sidelined with injury, Conte said:"Patience is still very important". He made a good run with the ball to help set it up, then when he looked to see who was where for a potential cross in, he quickly saw that the goalkeeper wasn't in an ideal position to make a save and ripped off his shot. I didn't like it, the players relaxed too much'.

"Last season we played with only 13 players, to do that again would be insane". The English champions proved a different proposition.

The Belgium worldwide fractured his ankle in June but has stepped up his recovery, featuring for the national team and off the bench for Chelsea.

Qarabag boss Gurban Gurbanov said: "The game was very hard for us".

"We made lots of errors and I accept we must play even better".
