Cesar Azpilicueta says Chelsea are determind to retain the Premier League crown
"He played a really fantastic game", Conte said.
"I think Baka is improving his physical condition", Conte said of the midfielder acquired from Monaco this summer.
"We are starting a path and to build something important".
With a much tougher game ahead on the weekend, it is likely that the team will be experimented. "In England it's not easy to do this." he added. "Until the end of your career you can always improve". "It was a disappointing first game for me but that's in the past and now I'm itching to play, and looking forward to getting back involved with the squad".
"You know very well if you win you've made the best decision, if you lose you've made the worst decision". For this reason there is the necessity to rotate and play game-by-game, " Antonio Conte said on Monday, September 11. I'm very calm as I trust my players'.
The Belgium worldwide said, "This year is really important [in the Champions League]".
Previously: This will be the first encounter between Chelsea and Qarabag in their history.
The London-based club coached by Antonio Conte are the last English team to triumph in Europe's elite club competition. They are also the last English club to win the competition (2012).
It is Chelsea's 15th time competing in the Champions League group stage.
Leicester have had a tough start to the season having played Arsenal and then Manchester United and Chelsea either side of the worldwide break.
FK Qarabag are one of the more unknown sides in this year's tournament, however like Chelsea, they are also in good form.
But this is their first time in the Champions League group stages. Following their stroll towards the fourth of four consecutive titles, the Baku outfit have made a ideal start to this year's campaign, winning all of their first three games, sitting in second place with a game in hand over the solitary side above them. However, the Blues turned it around in a hurry beating Tottenham Hotspur, their biggest title challengers last season, and the Everton decisively in games two and three.
The calibre of domestic opposition means it is hard to rest players and prioritise the Champions League, Conte says. His best performance was in 2012/13 when he reached the quarter-finals with Juventus.
"I was proud that he scored his goal".
He'll want to break his Champions League hoodoo and leave no stone un-turned to keep his squad fresh and motivated both mentally and physically over the course of the next few months.
