Conte: Chelsea changes showed trust in players”

Cesc Fabregas was delighted that Chelsea's wait for Champions League football was ended with a thumping 6-0 win over Qarabag.

'It was a good result. We must be pleased to see him in the team.

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte said on Tuesday that he wanted his players to fight for their places as they compete domestically and in Europe in a packed schedule this season. "I think Eden we must have a bit of patience with him and to try and give him the possibility to recover well, to be totally fit and I think this is the right process for him".

Davide Zappacosta scored in his first start for Chelsea.

Striker Michy Batshuayi, who played second fiddle last season to striker Diego Costa and is behind new Spanish signing Alvaro Morata in the pecking order this term, also got on the scoresheet. "For sure he knew very well my style of football and for this reason I made a decision to start with him", Conte said.

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.

Don't forget, in the team there are two players like Pedro and Willian, who are playing very well. "We are getting back to our best".

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

'Otherwise we risk bad injury and delaying the situation.

At Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United, also returning to the competition after a year's absence, saw off Basle 3-0 in Group A thanks to goals from Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.

Davide Zappacosta delivered an impressive display in his first start for Chelsea in their win over Qarabag - and Victor Moses was quickly reminded of the Italian's performance by his own teammates.

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