Morata already 'totally involved' in Chelsea style - Conte


Chelsea are back in the Champions League for the first time since the 2015-16 season, and they are back with a vengeance. Chelsea are coming off a hard-fought victory against Leicester.

Hazard is ambitious and wants to be the world's best player, and getting his hands on the Champions League trophy is vital to achieving this. He now wants to make his mark with Chelsea, but knows it will take time. That doesn't mean we're going to spend 90 minutes in defence.

Sunday's league match at home to Arsenal follows and Conte is not prepared to ask too much of players so early in the season.

"Now we are starting to play the Champions League".

One can say that at least he's scoring goals, but let's see him perform against bigger teams first.

Kante starred as Chelsea saw off his former team at the King Power Stadium, powering a low drive shot beyond Kasper Schmeichel to make sure a late penalty for the host didn't change the result. The Premier League champions play their second of seven games in September when their Group C campaign opens against Azerbaijan's Qarabag. "It's normal and there is the necessity to do rotation, otherwise you arrive to play the last two games without any energy". "Until the end of your career you can always improve".

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

They kept it rolling after the worldwide break today, defeating Leicester City 2-1 at the King Power Stadium to make it three victories in a row.

Cahill says the Blues cannot wait to get back to Champions League action after a one year absence, believing the club deserve to be competing with Europe's elite.

The Belgium worldwide has enjoyed plenty of success during his playing days, having won the Ligue 1 and Coupe de France titles with Lille before joining the Blues, where he added two Premier League crowns and the Europa League trophy to his cabinet.

He has struggled to get going in the Premier League so far this term following a knee operation and has started just two games.

Travelling supporters serenaded their record signing with a verse including anti-Semitic reference to Tottenham. The Blues were in the centre of a PR storm after a section of their fans were heard chanting a new song for talisman Alvaro Morata, with reference to cross-city rivals Spurs and their Jewish contingency.

Anything other than progression to the knock-out stages would be a huge disappointment for either club and they will consider themselves the outright favourites to go through. After 4 failed attempts of making it out of the qualifiers, they have made it and what a group to get into.

Despite his caution, Conte will believe that his side can have a deep run in the competition they won in 2012.
