Conte had bemoaned the fixture schedule that sends Chelsea to Liverpool for a crucial Premier League game on Saturday, just 48 hours after they return to London from the 5,000 mile (8,000 kilometres) round trip to Azerbaijan. "Atletico drew twice [against Qarabag] and Roma struggled, it means we faced a really good team". Fifteen minutes after, Willian struck, this time in a combination with Hazard, who sent him a back-heel pass in a tight spot in the box.

Referee Jorge Sousa adjudged Medvedev to have pulled Willian's shirt into the penalty area, despite the full-back's protests that contact stopped before they crossed the 18-yard line, allowing the former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder to sweep the ball into the bottom corner after his first effort was ruled out for encroachment.
