Chelsea Condemn Anti-Semitic Alvaro Morata Chant from Fans at Leicester

"You want to play these kind of games because every time you play in the Champions League it's a big game and everybody is watching you, so yeah we are happy to be back".

"In my past sometimes before a Champions League game you rested".

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

Meanwhile, the West London outfit are preparing for Tuesday's Champions League group match against Qarabag FK.

It is a dilemma Conte was spared last season when he masterminded Chelsea's Premier League title triumph in his first season coaching in England - a legacy of a 10th placed finish the year before which captain Gary Cahill calls "a freak".

Deadline-day signing Danny Drinkwater is the only player to be a certain absentee from the squad, as he continues to recover from a calf injury, which prevented him from featuring against his former employers at the weekend. It is the first time they play in this Champions League. "I have to check many situations and make the best decisions for tomorrow", he said.

No wonder United manager Jose Mourinho sounded a note of caution when Basel was drawn as a group-stage opponent in this season's Champions League.

"It is easier now for me and my job at this point of the season". Therefore, in the Champions League, the English return two years later, which will give owners more motivation for the fight.

"But for sure we played two days ago".

"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".

"Our group rivals are very strong and experienced teams but it doesn't mean that we will surrender before the battle starts".

They have all the momentum at the moment, with three straight wins against some quality opposition as well as the return of Eden Hazard.

N'Golo Kante is underlining his status as the best player in the Premier League and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte feels the best is yet to come from the France midfielder.

It is nearly impossible to see the hosts losing this one, and I think it will be a rough start for Qarabag in their life in European football.
