Chelsea vs Qarabag: Zappacosta puts Victor Moses under pressure
Chelsea marked their return to the Champions League on Tuesday night, , with a comprehensive 6-0 drubbing of Qarabag.
The Premier League champions were expected to defeat the Azerbaijan side easily, but went about their business ruthlessly.
Zappacosta’s 30th-minute strike, was the highlight of the game. The Italian, signed on deadline day from Torino and making his Champions League debut, struck from wide on the right. It appeared to be an attempted cross, which flew into the net.
“Zappacosta – he scores when he wants,” sang the Chelsea faithful.
Moses was left on the bench for the entire 90 minutes of the game.
Conte had hinted that he will make significant changes to his team.
The Blues’ return to Champions League action falls within a gruelling September run of seven matches in 21 days across three competitions.
It remains to be seen if the Super Eagles star’s place is under threat by Zappacosta, after a fine display on Tuesday.
