Leicester City 1 Chelsea 2: Morata, Kante keep up winning run

Former Chelsea player, Mohamed Salah has also left Roma for Liverpool and the Serie A side aren't as good as they were last season.

Hazard, who recovered from an ankle fracture sustained in June, played for the final 12 minutes as Chelsea ground out a 2-1 win with goals from striker Alvaro Morata and midfielder N'Golo Kante to go third in the table.

Chelsea footballer Eden Hazard is determined to win the Champions League title as his club begin their European campaign with a Group C match against Azerbaijani side Qarabag tomorrow morning (Singapore time).

Known for their defending and highly physical game, Atletico Madrid are easily the toughest opponents for Chelsea in the group stage.

Conte plans to rotate his players for the second of seven games in September, but defender Cahill is desperate to play, having served a three-match ban following his dismissal in the season-opener against Burnley. "The risk could be to play with the same players I did against Leicester and then the question would be: why didn't you change the team?"

"Now all the big players want to win the Champions League".

"I played against him when he played for Real Madrid and I played for Legia Warsaw". "I couldn't have that because you train day in, day out to perform on the big stage and there is none bigger than the Champions League".

"Don't forget Morata played a whole game with Spain and then the whole game against Leicester. That isn't a good feeling so yes, we are happy to be back".

Conte won the Champions League as a player with Juventus in 1996 and twice led them into the competition as manager, losing to eventual winners Bayern Munich in 2012-13. To win such a competition there is a need to work very hard, but we must be proud to play in a competition like the Champions League.

Danny Drinkwater is the only injury doubt for the game.

"We all know very well the importance of this player for us", the Italian said. It's always been my dream to play in the Champions League and win it. "If there is evidence that season-ticket holders or members took part, and take part in the future, we will take the strongest possible action".

Conte's best was to lead Juve into the last eight.
