Sergio Aguero injury doesn't change Chelsea plan for City - Antonio Conte

EDEN HAZARD believes Chelsea's win at Atletico Madrid was their best Champions League performance in his five years at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard started his first Premier League game of the season for the Blues but was largely ineffectual as Chelsea struggled to score against top opposition again at home.

"Since I came here, it's the first time we've beaten a really good, really strong team in the Champions League", Hazard told the Chelsea website.

The reigning champions were impressive on Wednesday night as a last second goal by Michy Batshuayi against Atletico Madrid meant they came away from the new Wanda Metropolitano with three precious points.

"His answer was fantastic and positive", said now coach Antonio Conte after the 2-1 victory. They are scoring a lot of goals, they are in a good moment of form and we have to prepare well (for) this game because it is very important.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Celtic are all on the road as they visit Atletico Madrid, CSKA Moscow and Anderlecht respectively.

"It's very important that he is important in every game for us, to make chances, to score or to provide assists for our players".

"We have only prepared the game in one day, today, and we have tried to prepare for it in the right way". Hazard made several good runs past Atletico defenders but he nearly always laid it off for Morata for a shot or a one-two. A deflected shot from Saul Niguez earned a corner from which David Luiz hauled Lucas Hernandez to the floor, leaving Griezmann to score a third goal in four games. He doesn't look sharp yet and while his touch is there I don't see that drive to produce those slalom runs which make him really unsafe.

An ankle injury suffered on worldwide duty put paid to the La Liga giants' hopes of snaring Hazard for this summer at least. However, they ended up losing more than just the game, as their star striker and club record transfer signing Alvaro Morata went down with an injury. "When you have to play a massive game only (three) days later, you must consider the fatigue in the legs of your players".
