Chelsea breezed into the last 16 of the Champions League after being helped to their 4-0 stroll over 10-man Qarabag by the award of a hotly-disputed first-half penalty and sending off in Baku yesterday.

Conte had bemoaned the fixture schedule that sends Chelsea to Liverpool for a crucial Premier League game on Saturday, just 48 hours after they return to London from the 8,000-kilometre round trip to Azerbaijan.

"We have to rest and try to win more games".

"We have to work during the flight to prepare for the game, but to be honest we started [preparing] with my staff before tonight so as not to wait until at the last moment", Conte told Chelsea's official website.

Having passed the first major test in their return to Champions League action, Conte says that his attention shifted immediately to a vital meeting with Jurgen Klopp's side on Sunday morning.

"I don't want to make excuses, but this is the reality. It will be a good chance to have another rotation".

Willian went on to discuss his and Chelsea's performance.

"With the supporters and the crowd behind them they should always be favourites and they should always play the game to win it and I'm sure they will play the match like that".

A 21st-minute penalty that follwed the sending off of Qarabag's Rashad Sadygov was converted by Eden Hazard to put the Blues ahead before Willian doubled their lead on 36 minutes. For me it was a penalty - I don't think for you guys it is, but for me it was a penalty.

Said former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand on BT Sport: "He's definitely world class". I'm happy to score two goals.

Qarabag: Sehic, Medvedev, Sadygov, Rzezniczak, Agolli, Guerrier (Yunuszadze, 81 mins), Almeida, Garayev, Madatov (Diniyev, 46 mins), Michel, Ndlovu (Quintana, 85 mins).

Hazard left after 65 minutes while Kante was subbed off with 15 minutes left. Unused subs: Kanibolotskiy, Amirguliyev, Ismayilov, Sheydaev.
