Chelsea aim to carry Champions League momentum in clash with Manchester City

Chelsea aim to carry Champions League momentum in clash with Manchester City”

Former Real Madrid striker Morata now has seven goals in eight Chelsea games since moving to Stamford Bridge as a direct replacement for Diego Costa, who watched on from the stands after rejoining Atletico this week. "It's easy for me playing with him".

As head coach, Conte's priority is improving his players.

Hazard, 26, missed the start of the season with an ankle injury.

Last season, Chelsea who went on to win the league, did the double over Manchester City.

However, Chelsea boss Conte says that the France global still has plenty of room for improvement as he continues to get used to life in west London.

Goals from Morata and Batshuayi had led Chelsea to victory on Wednesday.

"Eden, in every game, he finds a way to be decisive, to score or to make an assist for a team-mate". And frankly, I'm quite exhausted of all this talk resurfacing every time Hazard has a great game.

After Chelsea's win at Atletico, Conte said his side were being "penalised" by the proximity of the fixture with City, who beat Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday. As you know very well Man City are a really good team, but last season was the same.

"We have only prepared the game in one day, today, and we have tried to prepare for it in the right way".

"We're going to prove that we are ready for that and hopefully it will be a great game for us". "I like his behaviour and his attitude but in every game he must be decisive".

The Belgian's return to fitness, and form, is a boon for Conte, whose only gripe after Wednesday's game was that his team have been left with such a relatively short space of time to prepare for Saturday's match. We are excited to play. I think he's the best.

Conte also went on to send a get well message to Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero who was involved in a auto accident in the Netherlands on Friday. This season he has a big opportunity because we can play in the Champions League.

Conte, who expressed sympathy for the situation, said: "When you have your day off, you must take your own responsibility to try to make the best decision for you, for the team, for the club".
