Eden Hazard hails Michy Batshuayi after dramatic Chelsea win over Atletico Madrid

Eden Hazard hails Michy Batshuayi after dramatic Chelsea win over Atletico Madrid”

However, a few seconds after the three minutes which had been signalled by the fourth official, Batshuayi was perfectly placed to convert Alonso's low pass from close range for his fifth goal of the campaign.

And with the move finally done, Costa was able to witness Antoine Griezmann put his new team up thanks to a spot kick near the end of the first half.

The Italian, who led Chelsea to victories in both league games against City last season, said he would make a late call on the fitness levels of several players ahead of the encounter. We must be pleased with the personality and spirit we showed. We played tonight, away.

"I think this season we have to keep the same humility and this type of game, this win, can increase our confidence but I repeat, our target is to try to be competitive". We kept our heads. Last season we did that very well.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has questioned the scheduling of the side's Premier League match against Manchester City on Saturday, saying his players may not have enough time to recover from their Champions League win at Atletico Madrid.

"It's a huge game and it's away, so it's even more hard, but we feel ready", the 26-year-old Germany worldwide said. Its very important before taking this decision to analyse the different situations of the teams. "It is not right".

"It is a very important win for us".

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard added: "Michy scores every time he's on the field".

Batshuayi's victor came after missed opportunities for Cesc Fabregas and Morata as Chelsea became the first English team to win away to Atletico and condemn them to defeat in their first European game at their new stadium. "I'm so happy for him".
