"I have lived through the experience of playing in this competition with both Juventus and Real Madrid - and I have won titles".

Eden Hazard, the PFA Player of the Year in 2014-15, was in action today after missing the entire summer and early season due to a broken ankle.

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.

Italian side Roma will not go down easy however and they could make a strong claim themselves to progress through to the next round.

However, David Luiz has every faith in Bakayoko and has claimed he will make the Chelsea fans very happy.

"I like to call these kind of games tricky games".

Chelsea are the defending champions in the English Premier League but did not take part in the Champions League last season as they failed to qualify under now Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho. The risk could be to play with the same players I did against Leicester and then it would be why didn't you change the team?

The Champions League match between Chelsea and Qarabag will be broadcast live on Fox Sports Net. "I'm itching to play".

"This is good news for us, ' said Conte after the champions" third straight league win of the season.

The midfielder picked up the injury in training on Sunday, but Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte otherwise has a fully fit squad to choose from and hinted he will rotate his players. "You are never relaxed in England". "However, I know many of their players because when I was training Italy we faced Azerbaijan, and numerous players are on the national team".

"Of course we have to stay positive as a group because we knew that the first six games were going to be hard, playing the top four in that and the reigning champions in Chelsea".

"I have won a lot but I want to win more".

Chelsea were not in continental competition last term after the previous year's implosion, when Jose Mourinho was sacked for a second time and they finished 10th in the top flight.

"It is very important for us to win our first game at home", he said.
