UCL: Chelsea midfielder doubtful for Qarabag clash

"I have won the Premier League and the title in France". Future games will be hard, but the Blues have a strong team, and as such, they should pull through. "You have a tough league, the Champions League, the FA Cup and Carabao Cup". We must use our eyes and our previous experience as player and coach.

"There is the necessity to rotate and play game-by-game".

The Champions League match between Chelsea and Qarabag will be broadcast live on Fox Sports Net. In England it is not easy to do this.

"I have to check many situations and make the best decisions for tomorrrow". "To play every three days, to play 60-65 games at a high level, honestly is not easy. I'm very calm about this because I trust my players".

Conte also hinted that top scorer Alvaro Morata will be rested for the game against the Champions League minnows, saying: "I think is playing very well, scoring and involved in our style of football".
