The Leicester clash is quickly followed by Tuesday's Champions League group game at home to Qarabag with Chelsea needing to fulfil seven fixtures in just 21 days, an intense schedule Conte did not have to worry about last season. "You are never relaxed in England".

"The English teams have another difficulty because the league is very tough here".

Leicester have had a tough start to the season having kicked off the campaign at Arsenal, with the Foxes playing Manchester United and Chelsea either side of the global break. In England it is not easy to do this. "You risk a lot". If you win, it was the best decision.

"If you asked me if we had a chance to win the title in England you'd have said zero", Conte said. So, the game of Antonio Conte's wards is more based on the result, and therefore in the Italian manner, Chelsea does not perform effectively, but effectively.

Chelsea must continue to work on integrating new signings into the squad after winning three games in a row since their opening day defeat, Conte said.

"But in terms of the effort and commitment of the players so far I am very happy".

"The Champions League has become very, very special over the last couple of years and you want to play in these games".

"We're not scared of any of them", ESPN quotes Gurbanov as saying, "They have one of the best coaches in Europe and they have some of the best players in Europe".

Chelsea will be hoping to kick-start their European campaign with a victory over Azerbaijan side Qarabag on Tuesday evening in the Champions League group stage.

Frustrated by his past failures in the Champions League soccer, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has set his sights on a mission of redemption as he returns to the competition after a four-year absence. "But it's about the team doing well and they've done alright".

"In my past sometimes before a Champions League game I could rest players".

"Don't forget Morata played a whole game with Spain and then the whole game against Leicester". We must pay attention.

"We had a bad start against Burnley (they lost 3-2 at home) and some other difficulties but three wins in a row is important for the players because they are doing very well".

One can say that at least he's scoring goals, but let's see him perform against bigger teams first.

With two days less to prepare, Arsene Wenger is likely to rotate his side heavily.
