Chelsea failed to qualify for the Champions League in the last campaign and as they prepare to return to Europe's elite competition this season, the Belgium global is hopeful that his team can seal the trophy.

"Chelsea boss Antonio Conte talked to assembled media after the Blues" 6-0 win over Qarabag.

"Today I wanted to give an opportunity to Michy and to these players".

Football pundit Stan Collymore has claimed that Manchester United will go further than their Premier League rivals Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool in the Champions League this season. "Now we have to rest and get ready for a tough game against a strong Arsenal team".

And Conte was quick to explain why he gave the likes of Christensen a start.

Zappacosta doubled the lead on the half-hour mark with a visually impressive, if fortunate, goal, as he strode forward 70 yards on the right before swinging in a cross which caught Qarabag goalkeeper Ibrahim Sehic off his line and flew into the far corner. "He played a really good game".

"In this position as a central defender he is one of the best in the world".

Chelsea have been solid in the Premier League too. "It's early to speak about this. Otherwise we risk a bad injury". We played two days ago, and then we have to play tomorrow, and then we have to play a hard game against Arsenal. "We made lots of errors". I have 17-18 senior players.

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