Courtois insists Chelsea aren't underestimating Qarabag

There have been mixed fortunes for Antonio Conte this season

Antonio Conte calls Tony Pulis a “really good manager”

And, speaking after the game, Conte told Sky Sports: "We must be pleased because the performance was positive, it was very good".

However, Conte will also have in mind the fact that Chelsea face a trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool on Saturday, which may well affect his selection.

"For a lot of time, there isn't an English team playing a final in the Champions League".

Conte added: "I trust in all my players".

"For us the game against Qarabag is very important as we don't want to wait to go through to the next round". It will be very hard for us to recover, to rest.

The report said such a plant with a base of 100,000 to more than 300,000 workers producing up to 20,000 iPhones a day. What we will not do - and never have done - is stand still or turn a blind eye to problems in our supply chain.

He said: "I'm talking for all the teams who are playing in the Champions League, not just for Chelsea".

"England needs to try to understand this (issue) and change something".

And Courtois says the Chelsea players are aware of how hard the clash will be.

Qarabag lock horns with Chelsea at the Baku National Stadium for their Group C Uefa Champions League clash on Wednesday night.

Conte will be able to call on most of his first-team stars in the penultimate Champions League group game and the Chelsea boss revealed Eden Hazard is fit. If someone thinks that we are sure to win, it will not be easy.

"After that they gave Roma a really tough game here, they drew twice against Atletico, so we know we face a hard game".

Chelsea opened this season's European campaign with a 6-0 thrashing of Qarabag at Stamford Bridge, but the Azerbaijan champions have improved as two draws with Atletico Madrid shows.

And with Liverpool playing on Tuesday night and Chelsea needing to travel back from Azerbaijan on Wednesday night, Conte has hit out at the fixture imbalance.

"Whoever prepares the fixtures for the league must pay great attention. This season it is the second time we have had this situation, firstly against Manchester City and now Liverpool is playing tonight and we play tomorrow, a long trip and it will be very hard to recover and rest", Conte lamented during a pre-Qarabag press conference held on Tuesday, per football.london.
