Michy Batshuayi opened his Chelsea account for the season against QarabagWhat is the team news?

Luiz, 30, was dropped for the Blues' last game before the worldwide break-the 1-0 home win against United-and his replacement, Andreas Christensen, enjoyed an impressive performance.

Moses has only one appearance in the Uefa Champions League this campaign which was in the Blues' 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano on September 27.

That means Roma - who downed the Londoners 3-0 last time out in Italy - have leapfrogged them into top spot.

The Blues are now second in Group C and have made the 5,000-mile round trip to face Qarabag.

But Qarabag midfielder Michel Madera is brimming with confidence after his goal secured a draw in Madrid and he has fired a warning shot at Chelsea ahead of the game.

"Kenedy had a little muscular problem, but I think he is very close to be back with us". I'm a firm believer in underdogs, especially when playing at home in an unfamiliar setting for the bigger club, just not against this thriving Chelsea side.
