Hazard, Morata set to fire Chelsea into Champions League knockout stage.


CHELSEA are currently in Azerbaijan ahead of their Champions League showdown with Qarabag. The Blues were put through their paces at the Bakcell Arena by Antonio Conte today, as they gear up for a crucial Group C fixture.

Having lost 3-0 to Roma last time out, Chelsea were knocked off top spot and if they don’t win in Azerbaijan they could come under pressure from Atletico Madrid.

For Chelsea to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League, they must beat Qarabag.

Atletico were surprisingly held to draws in both matches against Qarabag but if they beat Roma at home, they will still be in with a chance of qualifying – ahead of a match day six showdown with the Blues at Stamford Bridge.

David Luiz is back in the mix for Chelsea following his brief exile by Conte, and star men such as Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro were all pictured training.
