Hazard Starts - Chelsea's Probable 3-4-3 XI vs Qarabag

"Qarabag are a good team". I played twice in the Champions League as Juventus coach but it wasn't this Juventus. It has back fired for them often in the Champions League.

After a quiet spell in the half, Leciester almost broke the deadlock after 39 minutes when Riyad Mahrez played Islam Slimani, who was denied by a fine save from Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea will most likely line up in a 3-4-3 again with N'Golo Kante or Tiemoue Bakayoko partnering Cesc Fabregas in the middle of the pitch. The club have since released an impromtu statement, promising the prosecution of all of those found to be involved, while Morata himself appealed to the supporters via Twitter. You don't create a big, strong team easily.

Roma have never won the Champions League, with their best run coming in the 1990-91 season when they finished as runners-up.

The Belgium worldwide has enjoyed plenty of success during his playing days, having won the Ligue 1 and Coupe de France titles with Lille before joining the Blues, where he added two Premier League crowns and the Europa League trophy to his cabinet.

With new players nearly across the whole pitch, Conte will use this game as a chance for his side to get to know each other a bit more on the field, hopefully with some success. Chelsea are back in the competition for the first time since they were beaten by Paris Saint-Germain in March 2016. The Blues' have not included Diego Costa in the squad but have a lot of youngsters in the squad.

Apple is apparently also working on the content front and aims at bringing a large collection of movies in 4K HDR to the iTunes. The biggest change will be the ability to watch live sports and live news through the Apple TV app.

All in all, it was an exciting game, especially with the return of Eden Hazard. They will certainly not want to give Qarabag a sniff, as stranger things have happened.

Qarabag striker Dino Ndlovu scored four goals in six games in this season's Champions League qualifiers. A win at home against Qarabag and winning all our home games will be key in topping the group.

But the 48-year-old Italian was confident that all the hard work he was able to put in on the training ground in his first campaign meant his ideas were now firmly embedded in his players' minds. He likes to control and dictate the game and it's crucial he's at his best against Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.

"But not just the Champions League, the World Cup, the European Cup".

"Although Antonio Conte's record at Juve domestically was great, his record in the Champions League with Juventus wasn't as good".

With the west London outfit back in action in the Champions League against Qarabag on Tuesday night, Hazard could be handed another chance to prove his fitness ahead of next weekend's clash against rivals Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
