Liverpool 'developing' ahead of Chelsea - Kuyt sees Merry Christmas for Reds

Cesc Fabregas celebrates after putting Chelsea 3-0 up from the penalty spot against Qarabag in the Champions League.

The Premier League champions eased to victory against their Azerbaijani hosts, who were reduced to 10 men in the first half, to make qualification from Group C a certainty ahead of the finale against Atletico Madrid next month.

"Whoever prepares the fixtures must try to change something".

It seems as though the Premier League is Manchester City's to lose but Champions League spots are up for grabs and the chance to catch Pep Guardiola's side could come down to how well you do against the other big boys.

"To have only one day to rest and prepare is not simple or easy".

"Also, when people hear the complaints of the coach, also someone has to help us - the press, the TV, to underline this unusual situation".

"We have to work during the flight to prepare for the game, but to be honest we started [preparing] with my staff before tonight so as not to wait until at the last moment", Conte told Chelsea's official website. I trust all my players and it is normal to have rotation.

"We know the admiration that I have for Real, but I'm at Chelsea".

Willian went on to discuss his and Chelsea's performance.

There was some dispute over the first penalty, converted by Hazard after 21 minutes, as Qarabag captain Rashad Sadygov was sent off for a foul on Willian. But I think Liverpool especially is developing. I'm happy to score two goals. "That was a little bit of world class in him right there".
