Qarabag FK boss Gurban Gurbanov "not scared" of facing Chelsea

Hazard Morata can score with his head- now let's see him score with his feet

Chelsea are coming off a hard-fought victory against Leicester.

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.

Chelsea make their return to Europe's showcase tournament on Wednesday morning against Azerbaijan side FK Qarabag. He now wants to make his mark with Chelsea, but knows it will take time. "We're going to attack as well".

"If I have to choose between the two, [Champions and Premier League] it would be the Champions League", Bakayoko said.

"'For sure in the Champions League we are starting a path".

"To win a competition, you need to work very hard, to improve over years and to grow step by step and to arrive to be like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus are now".

While Danish by birth he's been at Stamford Bridge long enough to be considered 'one of their own - but at Chelsea if you're from the youth team it usually means you're finished.

"For this reason it's normal to prepare some rotations [in the team]". "We have to rotate some players because if you do not do it is a risk". When you play against a medium team in the league and rest players you risk losing the game and in this league, there are six and seven teams ready to fight for the Champions League.

Qarabag will likely line up in a 4-1-4-1 formation, with former Birmingham City midfielder Michel in midfield and Dino Ndlovu leading the line. Fellow new signing Davide Zappacosta should be announced in the starting lineup following his positive impact off the bench at the weekend.

The Blues' return to Champions League action, falls within a gruelling September run of seven matches in 21 days across three competitions.

Nainggolan: The 29-year-old is a key part of Roma's midfield and if they can get him on the ball often, he will look to make things happen.

Conte has a new striker, two new midfielders, two defenders and an experienced keeper as back up to Thibaut Courtois. "We will try to be competitive in a short time and not wait three, four or five years".

Alvaro Morata is proving himself to be a competent goal scorer for Chelsea, but only when using his head. "It's the biggest stage to be involved in in club football".

Tonight we will get to see whether Chelsea's demanding manager has a legitimate case for raiding his boss' wallet even more despite the massive transfer splurge in the summer.
