Chelsea will now turn their attentions back to Premier League affairs and their trip to the bet365 Stadium to take on Stoke City on Saturday afternoon.

The Italian boss will be delighted that the vast majority of his squad will be fit for the clash.

"No [injury news] - all players are available apart from Danny Drinkwater who is continuing to work to recover", said Conte.

Antonio Conte has tipped Chelsea youngsters Charly Musonda and Kenedy to continue to play a key role for his first-team after impressing in the win over Nottingham Forest.

Pedro is fit following a leg problem, while midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko was involved in a minor vehicle accident on his way home from training on Thursday but was uninjured.

"The most important thing is to go game by game".

Hazard had an immediate impact against Arsenal and stung the palms of Petr Cech following one of his trademark mazy runs, and Conte and Chelsea have spoken publically of the importance of the Belgian to the club's plans this season. After all, they are unbeaten at home this season, having already beat Arsenal and held Manchester United to a draw, and have plenty of talented attacking players with whom to put pressure on the Chelsea defence.

Kurt Zouma will be unavailable to face his parent club due to the terms in his loan deal, which causes defensive issues for Stoke with several other players out.

"Now it is very important to prepare". 'I'm working with my players and I'm happy to be working with them.

"There is always a reaction on the back of a disappointing result, and we fully expect the performance to be markedly better this weekend".

Conte said: "Eden in the last game played very well".

Hazard had made just three appearances off the bench for the Blues this season after breaking his ankle at the end of last term. I think he played with good intensity.

Stoke, now placed 13th in the league, are on a three-game winless run since their 1-0 victory over Arsenal last month.

"They stay with us [and] if they are in our squad then it means we trust them. We want to thank him for his efforts last season with us, but not only last season, in the whole period he played for Chelsea". But we have prepared very well and it's the first game of three in seven days.
