Fabian Delph filled in at left-back in the midweek Champions League match against Shakhtar Donetsk.

"So it was some performance".

"I love the way he is always on the shoulder". Chelsea were the better side. "You see he's the wrong side, he knows he's the wrong side and he gets a handful of the shirt and the referee is in a great position".

Conte told the player he was no longer in his plans via text while Costa was famously filmed mocking his then-manager while drunk during the sabbatical in Brazil. When the hosts scored their second goal courtesy of Insigne, another completely avoidable episode of a team paying respect to an injured player took place.

The Belgian forward came on as a substitute to steal the limelight, finishing off a calm and precise Chelsea move with the very last kick of the game.

Morata and Cesc Fabregas both failed to make the most of decent chances as the Premier League side pushed for a win.

It has been like a triumph. 'Clearly I would have preferred for him to continue as a team-mate, ' the midfielder added. Only my family knows what I have been through".

Manchester United had an easier night in Russia with a comfortable 4-1 success over CSKA Moscow.

It was a result that ranks as one of Chelsea's best in European football, comparable with the epic run to the final when they won the tournament in Munich in 2012 which included a legendary semi-final triumph over Barcelona. In addition, star Eden Hazard has not only returned from injury, but he has hit the ground running.

Napoli humbled Feyenoord 3-1 in Naples with the front three of Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon all getting on the score sheet.

Morata, signed from Atletico's arch-rivals Real for £65m in the summer, added: "It was a very important test for us as a team".

Keane, renowned for his take no prisoners assessments, delivered his ruthless verdict after Luiz gave away a penalty in the dying seconds of the first half against Atletico Madrid. We are all happy. It's a form of cheating. He's lazy and he's letting his team-mates down. But you look at Chelsea at this moment, he does look like the main man. I think he could add something different to Chelsea, especially away from home.

And let's be honest: Atlético can't really have many complaints.
