Former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata was a constant threat to Chelsea, forcing a good save from Oblak and seeing another shot go just wide off the coast.

"We must be very happy because Eden Hazard's performance was incredible and it was the first big game for him after his injury". Our start wasn't so easy.

Hazard's display at the Wanda Metropolitano this week looked like a player keen to make amends and prove a point simultaneously.

They have scored 21 goals in their first six Premier League matches this season, and Conte also spoke highly of the expansive way in which Pep Guardiola sets up his teams.

Alvaro Morata may be grabbing the headlines for his goal-scoring exploits, but steering the well-oiled Chelsea unit once more is N'Golo Kante, a man whose consistency deserves the utmost acclaim. Manchester City and United put five and four past them respectively and Chelsea will have to do similarly to show fans they can still match Manchester's might.

If Morata was able to recognize the injury early - his midweek knock was supposedly an ankle, a different, probably unrelated issue - hopefully he will be able to avoid any significant damage by taking the next two weeks off. Spain should be able to make do without him; Chelsea can't really.

"We needed to take this risk because Morata for us is an important player".

"I'm seeing great determination in him", the Italian added. It's important to understand when there is the room to travel, to go to see a game or for other situations.

Conte has urged Hazard to take his game to the next level and the Belgian was scintillating at times. My task is to try and push him to be decisive in every moment, in every game.

Asked how many changes he might be forced to make to his team, Conte said: "I don't know".

The result - Chelsea's first success on Atletico territory - leaves Antonio Conte's team at the top of Group C with six points, while Atletico remain winless and have work to do in their double-header with Qarabag FK.

"The last few games Fabian Delph has played and he had an outstanding performance".
