"It's very important for us before the international break to take the three points".
This comes after Neymar and Cavani fell out over the set-piece duties at the Lyon game two weeks ago.
Chelsea will still be without Danny Drinkwater.
'He is improving and his commitment is very good.
"In my opinion, this is the perfect time to be considered the underdogs".
"Man City are in a good moment", Hazard said.
Conte also spoke in similar terms about the team overall, saying that the club is "starting to build something important". He looked almost untouchable and combined with Morata throughout.
But Chelsea, who hit the post through Eden Hazard in the opening stages, again impressed after the interval and were rewarded when Alvaro Morata equalised with his fourth goal in five days. "Ultimately it wasn't to be, but we have many games remaining and we need to win them all".
Chelsea were on top for long spells against Atletico - beaten finalists in this competition in 2014 and 2016 - and the manner of their performance pleased Conte.
"I am going for a 2-0 to City".
Both clubs finally reached an agreement for a reported initial €55 million deal on Thursday and the Brazilian-born striker has now completed his medical with the Spanish giants. We certainly go there knowing that we're capable of beating them and full of confidence.
Cesc Fabregas says Diego Costa's loss has been eased by Alvaro Morata settling in at Chelsea so easily. Chelsea will miss David Luiz - but we won't.
"I think he has a lot of room for improvement and he has to put in work".
It is a deserving win and the first defeat for Atletico on home soil against English opposition - not the way they wanted to start life in a new home. I'm hoping he makes a speedy recovery.
"Honestly, I'm very surprised to see that we have to play on Saturday, not on Sunday".
Conte told the player he was no longer in his plans via text while Costa was famously filmed mocking his then-manager while drunk during the sabbatical in Brazil. We sent a clear message, that we can do great things.
