'You are never relaxed in England because you have to play a tough league and also FA Cup and Carabao Cup, ' he said.

"It is very important for us to win our first game at home", he said. To play 60, 65 games it's normal, but it's not easy.

Qarabag FK manager Gurban Gurbanov insists that the club are "not scared" of facing Chelsea in the Champions League this evening.

"In England it is not easy to win but I have good players".

'When you make the decision [on selection] there is always the risk.

"When you play against a medium team you know you risk losing the game [in England]".

"We have to stay positive as a group because we knew that the first six games were going to be hard as we play last year's top four and champions", said Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare.

"But we are very happy because we know the importance of this player for us".

Yet Conte has doubts too about Willian, the most un-Brazilian Brazilian in the game.

Mercedes-AMG Project One revealed: the ultimate hypercar?
The steering wheel , as with Formula One, is where a driver controls numerous vehicle's key performance functions. And while the Project One may draw from Formula One, the overall look is more like that of a Le Mans prototype.

It is the first time Chelsea will play opponents from Azerbaijan when they play Qarabag.

Leicester have had a tough start to the season having kicked off the campaign at Arsenal, with the Foxes playing Manchester United and Chelsea either side of the global break. This is the first UEFA Champion League game that the team will be playing. They are also the last English club to win the competition (2012).

Bakayoko helped Monaco to reach the semi-final stage of the Champions League in 2016-17, with his efforts in that campaign - and a Ligue 1 title triumph - helping to convince Chelsea that he was worthy of a big-money summer transfer.

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.

Elsewhere in the group, Roma and Atletico battled to a 0-0 draw, which is just about the best result for Chelsea.

Although Chelsea will still fancy their chances of getting through to the knockout stages, squad strength could well become an issue after that.

They have all the momentum at the moment, with three straight wins against some quality opposition as well as the return of Eden Hazard.

CHELSEA manager Antonio Conte is prepared to leave out some star names for Wednesday morning's (AEST) visit of Group C outsiders Qarabag in the Champions League. A fantastic headed finish from the Spaniard, making it five goals in four games for club and country.
