Chelsea vs Qarabag – Team News


Chelsea are just an hour away from resuming their participation in the Champions League, and as expected Antonio Conte has made some major changes to the team.

As Conte hinted in his press conference, Eden Hazard is still not fit enough for a start, and he is on the bench along with star striker Alvaro Morata. Michy Batshuayi gets a start for the first time since the Community Shield.

In midfield it’s the Fabregas-Kante combo that has served us so well.

In defence Davide Zappacosta makes his debut, and Andreas Christensen returns to the team along with captain Gary Cahill.

If the game goes as planned, expect to see Eden Hazard appear late on to get some minutes under his belt. Although there will be no such opportunity for Charly Musonda, who doesn’t make the bench.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Qarabag (kick off at 19:45 pm GMT):
