- Match Analysis
The Blues gave a dominant performance in a 1-0 victory over title rivals Manchester United at Stamford Bridge just earlier this month.
Chelsea were emphatic 4-0 winners against West Brom at the Hawthorns Stadium as Hazard topped a brilliant performance with a goal and an assist.
Former Arsenal midfielder Nicholas is backing Chelsea to beat Qarabag in the Champions League to secure their spot in the knockout stage.
“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.”
