Antonio Conte delighted with "great performance" from Chelsea

Antonio Conte delighted with

Chelsea take on Azerbaijani champions Azerbaijani Qarabag FK tonight as they look to record their third win in a row.

Perhaps one of the few people at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening that wasn't delighted to see Davide Zappacosta find the net was Victor Moses.

Conte was able to rest Alvaro Morata and David Luiz for the game, while Eden Hazard also got a run-out after making his debut this season against Leicester City on Saturday [9 September], where he played for 12 minutes. First game in the Champions League, I made a decision to start with a rotation. "It's very important and I had a positive answer from my players".

"We just have to take it game by game now", he continued.

Michy Batshuayi, who was handed a rare start, hit a brace in the final 15 minutes to complete the rout, with a shot from outside the area and then a scrambled finish from Zappacosta's cross.

It was an uncomfortable introduction to the Champions League group stage for Qarabag, the defensively feeble Azerbaijan champions who first conceded after five minutes when Pedro Rodriguez bent the ball past Sehic. My message tonight was this: I trust all my players, not with only words, but with facts. We have a lot of games to play this season.

"We have to develop these players, to try and create a good competition, a positive competition, between them".

The Nigerian global excelled at right wing-back during Chelsea's title winning campaign, but Zappacosta will be keen to take the spot following an impressive debut.

"I'm enjoying my football and I just want to say thanks to him, really".

Despite Hazard's solid showing as a second half substitute, Conte admitted it might be too soon for the Belgian playmaker to start against Arsenal. "We must have a bit of patience with Eden", Conte said.

"The English teams have another difficulty because the league is very tough here". Otherwise we risk a bad injury to delay the situation.

Chelsea will go into Sunday's Premier League derby against Arsenal brimming with confidence.

"We are happy we are part of this tournament".
