Systems with three central defenders have become commonplace in the game since Antonio Conte used it to lead Chelsea to the Premier League title.

"Last season we played with only 13 players, to do that again would be insane".

'I think in this position, as a centre back he is one of the best of the world.

However, Conte has warned his Chelsea players that they must be at their best week in, week out, as they look challenge for silverware on multiple fronts this season. For the first game in the Champions League, I chose to start with rotation.

The goals were spread through the team, although the strength of the performance has to be countered with the defensive ineffectiveness of a Qarabag side showing its inexperience.

"The clean sheet also and for me and for Marcos Alonso, Davide Zappacosta and N'Golo Kante, it was our first game in the Champions League and to win the first game is very good".

Conte said: "He has said that he wanted to cross". He needs more time than Zappacosta.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Bakayoko and Batshuayi added to the tally after the break, before an own goal from Maksim Medvedev capped the scoring, as the Blues had too much quality and strength in depth for the champions of Azerbaijan.

"The game was very hard for us, Chelsea played very well", he said.

Qarabag is a political symbol that goes far beyond football in the country. Many locals fled east to the Azerbaijani capital Baku, where Qarabag plays. The venue of the match is at Stamford Bridge, London.

"We made lots of errors".

Antonio Conte's men have been handed a tough task to make it through to the knockout stages after being paired with Roma and Atletico Madrid in Group C so it's vital they beat minnows Qarabag tonight.
