Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea on Tuesday night, September 12, made a superb return to the UEFA Champions League after beating visiting Qarabag FK 6-0.

The Blues missed the championship last year after their failure to finish among the top four teams, but they did themselves lots of good last season by winning the League title.

Antonio Conte's men started the match impressive at Stamford Bridge, and it only took them five minutes to find the back of the net when Pedro Rodriquez scored the first goal.
