Chelsea have three important fixtures in space of eight days and the team started it well with a 4-0 hammering of West Brom away from home.

Chelsea play Qarabag away from home on Wednesday and then play Liverpool on Sunday.

Antonio Conte has frowned at the fixture listing and believes it played a part in the loss to Manchester City back in September just three days after the victory over Atletico Madrid.

He told the press: “It’s very difficult to think someone can stop them. They have won every game and drawn just once.

“For sure it was a pity to play them after only two days when we played Atletico and we came back. For sure it was a pity, sometimes who prepares this type of fixture must pay great attention and give every team the same possibility. Against Man City one team was a favourite and it was a pity.

“Who prepare this fixture must pay great attention. We play Qarabag on Wednesday and then we have Liverpool on Saturday. Is it normal this? I don’t think. If someone wants more balance they must pay great attention before the fixtures.”
