Fabregas revels in Chelsea's winning Champions League return”

Davide Zappacosta surged down the field past two defenders before striking into the net for an audacious goal on his full debut as Chelsea marked its return to the Champions League with a 6-0 victory over Qarabag in Group C on Tuesday.

Despite coming on after 58 minutes, Conte stressed that the Blues will not rush key man Hazard back from his injury. We made lots of errors and I accept we must play even better.

The Azeri champions were never any match for their English counterparts and it took only five minutes for Pedro to open the scoring with a curling shot from the edge of the area.

Giving his understudies a chance for valuable game time was an added bonus for Conte, who said: "I wanted to give a chance to Michy and also to Andreas Christensen". I trust all my players, not only with words but with facts. We are insane to think we could play with only 13 players like last season.

Deadline-day signing Zappacosta, apparently looking to cross the ball, produced a swirling screamer of a goal from some 35 metres out on the half hour.

Chelsea had to settle for a 2-0 lead at the break, but then ran riot with four further goals in the second period.

"If he's having an indifferent game, they're the players that make the difference". We started the Champions League in the right way, ' said boss Antonio Conte.

"In this position as a central defender he is one of the best in the world". I didn't like it, the players relaxed too much'.

"The game was very hard for us".

'We were playing fantasy football, PlayStation football.

THEIR ABSENCE from last year's competition couldn't have been felt more keenly as Chelsea were forced to look on as Europe's top club completion carried on without them.

"The game was very hard for us, Chelsea played very well", he said.
