Antonio Conte delighted with 'perfect' Chelsea after Qarabag win

Champions League trophy

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 their return to the Champions League with a 6-0 victory over Qarabag on Tuesday.

Chelsea's next Champions League game is away on September 27 to Atletico Madrid who held AS Roma to a 0-0 draw in Italy.

A brace from Michy Batshuayi, and a goal each from Pedro Rodriguez, Cesar Azpilicuerta, and new signings Tiemoue Bakayoko and Davide Zappacosta, secured the emphatic win for Chelsea.

"Last season we played with only 13 players, to do that again would be insane".

"To play in the Champions League means the coach trusts you". My message was this. In my past sometimes before a Champions League game I could rest players. We started the Champions League in the right way.

"It was a good start, a flawless start us", Conte said.

With those key players kept fresh and Eden Hazard coming off the bench for only his second appearance since close-season ankle surgery, Conte is confident Chelsea will go into their London derby in good condition to claim three valuable points. So we have to improve all these players to create positive competition, between them. "A positive competition is very important".

He said: "It was a really disappointing start, the loss against Burnley".

"We must be calm and to do the best for the player and for the team".

"We are focused on Arsenal - a tough, tough game - on Sunday".

Blues boss Antonio Conte said: 'I think with Eden, we must have a bit of patience with him'. Otherwise we risk a bad injury to delay the situation.

Still, Gurbanov was proud to have led an Azerbaijani team into the group stage of European soccer's elite competition for the first time.

"We made lots of errors. But I am satisfied with the way we played".
