Conte reacts to Chelsea incredible win over Qarabag

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has heaped praises on his players following their incredible 6-0 win over the Azerbaijani Champions Qarabag in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Spanish forward Pedro scored the first goal for the Blues and Chelsea new signing scored a superb goal to seal the first half with a 2-0 victory, further goals from Cesar Azpilicueta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and a brace from Michy Batshuayi ensured a 6-0 victory.

And Conte thinks he can take a lot of “positive things” away from the victory after a year’s absence from the Champions League.

“It was a good result,” Conte told BT Sport. “We started the Champions League in the right way. I saw great commitment, focus and concentration right from the start. It was a great performance from the players.

“A lot of positive things from us. Davide Zappacosta played very well and Eden Hazard is trying to find his best form.

“It’s very important to give players the opportunity like Andreas Christiansen. They must understand I trust them. I have 17-18 senior players. Every single player can have a chance to play.”

The Premier League Champions will be up against Arsenal on Sunday in their next league game at the Stamford Bridge.
