Champions League: Chelsea hammer Qarabag 4-0, qualify for Round of 16


Liverpool are undefeated against Chelsea in their last 5 games, all in the Premier League.

"This group is showing great character", Conte said. 100 per cent. Do we think it's a mentality problem? Our answer was positive, nearly always positive.

Roma are second with eight points and have a match against Atletico Madrid later in the night. Liverpool played a really good first half with great intensity.

"Whoever prepares the fixtures must try to change something".

After an injury time equalizer by Watford in the first game of the season Liverpool took the disappointment of that 3-3 draw and turned it into a win in the very next game against Hoffenheim. Also, when people hear the complaints of the coach, also someone has to help us.

Securing their place in the knockout stages with one match remaining means Conte can rotate his options against Atletico next month. For us the game against Qarabag is very important as we don't want to wait to go through to the next round.

"I did many rotations". Willian also managed a second goal.

A 21st-minute penalty that follwed the sending off of Qarabag's Rashad Sadygov was converted by Eden Hazard to put the Blues ahead before Willian doubled their lead on 36 minutes.

Willian said: "Was it a penalty? That was a little bit of world class in him right there". For me it was a penalty - I don't think for you guys it is, but for me it was a penalty.

"I watched the game", he added.

"We deserved to win tonight".

"Chelsea didn't need this red card".
