A classy finish from Pedro, followed by a wonder strike from Zappacosta put Chelsea 2-0 ahead in the first half at Stamford Bridge.
Giving his understudies a chance for valuable game time was an added bonus for Conte, who said: "I wanted to give a chance to Michy and also to Andreas Christensen". We are getting back to our best.
César Azpilicueta extended Chelsea's lead just 10 minutes into the second half, before three goals in the space of 11 minutes, coming from Tiémoué Bakayoko, Michy Batshuayi and a Maksim Medvedev own goal rounded off a near ideal evening at Stamford Bridge.

"When you are here the players want to fight to try to win it, maybe because we are not in (mainland) Europe". So, if I have to choose between the two, it would be the Champions League.

The English champions proved a different proposition, despite Conte rotating his options for the second of seven matches in September. "For sure he knew very well my style of football and for this reason I made a decision to start with him", Conte said.
