Chelsea players must fight for places in rotated team, says coach Conte

Chelsea players must fight for places in rotated team, says coach Conte

It took Zappacosta to lift Chelsea out of what had become a sluggish spell.

Batshuayi has made three Premier League appearances for Conte's side so far this term, all of them coming as a substitute.

'I think in this position, as a centre back he is one of the best of the world. But the chance to win the title last season was zero and we changed the opinion of the people.

Conte told a news conference on Monday afternoon: "It's very important to have experience as a player and also as a coach in this competition because you understand the level". My message tonight was this: I trust all my players, not with only words, but with facts.

Basel played a formation with three central defenders against United in the Champions League on Tuesday, but Mourinho insists that journalists interpret the system incorrectly.

"It was a good start, a ideal start us", Conte said. If we think we can play with 13 players like last season, we are insane.

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

The feeble Azerbaijan champions first conceded after five minutes when Pedro Rodriguez bent the ball past Sehic.

Cesar Azpilicueta made it 3-0 for Conte's charges in the 55th minute with a header from the centre of the box following a chip by Cesc Fabregas from a set-piece situation. "We must have a bit of patience with Eden", Conte said.

Bakayoko turned provider for Michy Batshuayi to score, and the rout was completed by Zappacosta also setting up Batshuayi to send in the sixth off Maksim Medvedev.

The live match Chelsea vs Qarabag will be telecasted on BT Sport (UK), Fox Sports (U.S.) TV channels and the match is live streamed at BT Sport app, Fox Soccer 2Go.

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