Chelsea are back to the UEFA Champions League after missing out in last edition following their inability to qualify for the tournament last season.
The Blues face Qarabag tonight in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is hopeful that Blues will start-off on a positive note after missing out.
Conte who spoke ahead of the clash told uefa.com that: “There’s a word that I repeat in every interview: work, work, work. If there’s a word that sums up my approach, it’s work. Even as a player, working hard always led me to achieve great success. I really believe in making my players work hard.”
The former Juventus boss once stated that Chelsea belongs to the Champions League class even before winning the premier league, and he will be willing to prove this point following their qualification.
