Ahead of Chelsea’s important Champions League game against Qarabag on Wednesday, Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has revealed his prediction for the game.

Nicholas expects Chelsea to win Qarabag 2-0 at Baku on Wednesday.

Nicholas also revealed he expects a Chelsea boss Antonio Conte to pick a strong side against Qarabag.

“Chelsea have responded well to their issue but, as we saw Antonio Conte linked with the Italy job, the feeling still does seem to be when he will go, not if,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.

“Eden Hazard is gradually looking sharper and Cesc Fabregas was fantastic at the weekend. Conte will just want the job done and to save as much energy before a long journey back.

“I could see him resting Alvaro Morata, giving the young lad Charly Musonda another game, but I do still see a strong side taking care of business.”
