Chelsea's Conte set to shuffle pack for Qarabag

Chelsea's Conte set to shuffle pack for Qarabag

Chelsea are in action again tomorrow night at home to Qarabag in and Hazard could get another run-out in the Champions League group game. You are never relaxed in England, because you have to play a tough league and also the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

"N'Golo is very important for us - a top player". There is the necessity to rotate and to play game by game.

With new players nearly across the whole pitch, Conte will use this game as a chance for his side to get to know each other a bit more on the field, hopefully with some success. In England it is not easy to do this. If you win, it was the best decision. When you play against a medium team and you have to know that you risk to lose the game in the league.

"When you play this type of competition you play to try to do your best and try to win every game, to go step by step".

"But we have played well in each of those games". "I know a lot of these players very well, because I played against Azerbaijan when I was Italian coach".

Antonio Conte opted for a change after 73 minutes as Zappacosta replaced Victor Moses to make his Chelsea debut.

ON COMPARISONS - The game of reference race is not the game next against Arsenal, but that of Saturday against Leicester. It's frustrating but it's about the team doing well and they've done very well of late. They are also the last English club to win the competition (2012).

But it was a far different story in the Champions League, where what should have been a fairly undemanded group turned into a four-month horror story for Conte.

"Don't forget last season, at the start of the season, no one person said Chelsea could win the league".

After a quiet spell in the half, Leciester almost broke the deadlock after 39 minutes when Riyad Mahrez played Islam Slimani, who was denied by a fine save from Thibaut Courtois.

With this man back in the Chelsea fold, it is imperative that the Qarabag defence stay extra tight.

However, the Azerbaijani side is an unknown quantity, which always poses a danger.

It would interesting to see how Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata fare against the Atletico Madrid defense. He took Juventus to the quarter-finals once as boss and the Bianconeri have thrived in the competition since he left to take charge of Italy. Indeed, for club and country already this season, Morata has scored 5 goals in 4 games.
