Bad for Real Madrid: Eden Hazard to out-earn Paul Pogba

Eden Hazard makes his first league start of the season for Chelsea, while there are also starting places for Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

Even so, with Hazard back, Morata so quickly into the groove and Atletico beaten, the champions feel ready to tackle rampant City, top of the Premier League after six games, with 21 goals scored.

The Italian told Chelsea's official website: "I think we have to look at ourselves and try to put everything into every game".

'Since I came here it's the first time we've beaten a really strong team in the Champions League.

"I think after this transfer market they improved a lot".

Chelsea have now lost twice at Stamford Bridge this season and Conte said they had faced a tough fixtures schedule.

Conte has urged Hazard to take his game to the next level and the Belgian was scintillating at times. "Tonight we play away and we return to London at about four o'clock tomorrow morning".

Chelsea's bad home form, four points from four league games so far at Stamford Bridge is a serious cause for concern.

Chelsea have won the league in two of the last three seasons.

The most concerning aspect of Chelsea's performance on Saturday in the 1-0 loss to Manchester City was the team's inability to pose any tangible threat to the opposition, despite Guardiola's men offering a clear and obvious way to attack them.

"It's a huge game and it's away, so it's even more hard, but we feel ready", said the Germany worldwide, whose side lead Manchester United on goal difference.

I do still think you can get at them and I think Jose Mourinho might make two or three changes to give them a bit more control. Then it was Sergio Aguero and Manchester City in the Champions League and they made it hard for us. It's important to understand when there is the room to travel, to go to see a game or other situations.
