Eden Hazard: Chelsea have squad to win Champions League

Chelsea should take cue from Tiemoue Bakayoko in Champions League bid

"Still no Diego Costa, he can watch it on the tele like the rest of us".

Tonight we will get to see whether Chelsea's demanding manager has a legitimate case for raiding his boss' wallet even more despite the massive transfer splurge in the summer. He will need to produce the performance of a lifetime to keep out the attacking threats from Qarabag's group opponents.

Indeed, there are at least 11 other players who have a higher reputation than the South African striker.

Antonie Griezmann was to join Manchester United and Alexandre Lacazette replacing him but the former Real Sociedad man decided not to leave when the transfer ban was not lifted.

"But we're more than capable of competing at this level". Apart from him, Koke and Saul Niguez can be the ones to cause trouble.

Eden Hazard has scored only one goal in his last 12 Champions League games, it was from the penalty spot.

"It's a great competition and we must be proud to play it".

Weakness: Overly defensive - They sit back and defend a lot.

The match will have added meaning for Cahill after being forced to watch the competition on television a year ago owing to Chelsea's 10th place finish in the 2015-16 season.

Stateless Saakashvili forces his way into Ukraine
Mr Saakashvili has denied the accusations, branding them a political witch hunt. Mikheil Saakashvili has crossed into the country in a magical way.

"He makes good runs and makes good quality passes and now there is quality in his finishing". However, they still have enough firepower in the team to make things hard for the Blues.

However, Antonio Conte will now turn his attention to European football - a challenge he did not have to face last time around and a challenge he is likely looking forward to. The Belgian is Roma's best player and it is no surprise that Conte wanted him.

"The reaction (after the Burnley loss), especially in the derby against Tottenham, was very good". In the new season, Karabakh has already habitually started with a victory, earning 9 points in 3 rounds.

They failed to qualify last season and, although they responded by winning the Premier League title, the manager spoke with caution about their chances of lifting the trophy again.

In order to get from Azerbaijan to SW6, Qarabag have had to overcome 4,500 miles and three qualifying rounds.

They have played in the Europa League but never made it out of the group stage.

Conte also explains why the game against Qarabag will be a tough one for his team at the start of their Champions League campaign.

"I have won a lot but I want to win more". The dream can only become a reality, however, if Chelsea make sure they clear the easier hurdles and that means beating Qarabag, ideally by a decent margin, on Tuesday night.

That miss proved costly for Shakespeare's side as, less than two minutes later, Chelsea found the breakthrough.
