Hazard, Willian shine as Chelsea cruise into last 16

Chelsea's schedule will test the depth of their squad

Chelsea easily booked passage to the next round of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday with a simple 4-0 win over Qarabag in Azerbaijan.

Qarabag captain, Rashad Sadygov, saw red in the 18th minute after pulling Willian's arm down in the box.

Cesc Fabregas netted Chelsea's third from the spot in the 73rd minute after another foul on Willian, and the Brazil global crashed home his second in the closing moments.

Speaking on BT Sport, Chelsea's all-time leading scorer Lampard, who netted 211 goals for the Blues, said: "World class for me is affecting games at Champions League and worldwide level over a period of time and Hazard is certainly in that bracket". It will be a good chance to have another rotation with the players.

The Stamford Bridge outfit started off slowly - which could be due to the 2,500-mile trip they had to make - with Michel hitting the post in the opening 15 minutes, however the Londoners then stepped it up a gear and never looked back. Maybe that would be different if that went in. We should have scored more.

Antonio Conte's side reached the knockout stages with a game to spare thanks to influential displays from Hazard and Willian at the Olympic Stadium that knocked Azerbaijanis Qarabag out of the competition. "We are ready for Saturday". We should have scored more goals.

Still, another foul on Willian in the 73rd minute by Maksim Medvedev led to Fabregas scoring from a penalty that he had to convert twice after his first successful attempt had been ruled out for encroachment.

"I'm happy to score two goals", he added.
