Head coach Antonio Conte lauded a “perfect” Champions League return for Chelsea after Tuesday night’s 6-0 Group C rout of Azerbaijan’s Qarabag.

Goals from Pedro, Davide Zappacosta, Cesar Azpilicueta, substitute Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi ensured a comfortable return to Europe’s elite after last season’s first absence since 2003-04. The sixth was bundled in by a combination of Batshuayi and defender Maksim Medvedev.

“It was a good start, a perfect start for us,” Conte said.

“To play the first game (of the) Champions League, then to win with a good result, to score many goals, to finish the game with a clean sheet. I saw a lot of positive things tonight.

“Now we have to continue, we have to rest tomorrow and then to start to think about the next game, a strong game, a tough game against Arsenal (on Sunday).”
