That result earned Conte's men their place in the last-16 and the Italian tactician admits he has been thoroughly impressed with his side's response, which also included a 1-0 win over Manchester United in the Premier League. Will top the group if they beat Atletico Madrid. Chelsea manager Antonio Conte even had the luxury of substituting left wing back Marcos Alonso and Hazard around the hour mark.
Last-place Crystal Palace (+135) can not score at home (four goals in five fixtures) and Everton (+220, +215 draw) can not score on the road (two in five), but neither keeps it tidy around its goal.
The Belgium worldwide turned provider in Chelsea's well-worked team goal in the 36th minute, back-heeling the ball into the path of Willian as part of a one-two to allow the Brazilian to side-foot a finish into the bottom corner.
Pedro started the swaggering move with a flick into the path of Willian, who guided the ball to Hazard.
Willian said: "Was it a penalty?"
REFEREE: Manuel Jorge Neves Moreira De Sousa (POR). The home team and the near-70,000 raucous fans in attendance were aghast, and for a moment it looked like we might have a revolution on our hands. "We play every three days so we have to rest". "Beating Qarabag has taken some of the edge off". They had chances to score other goals, but they were unlucky. Cesc Fabregas tucked his spot kick away, only for it to be ruled out for encroachment, but the midfielder converted at the second attempt, too. For sure, the second half against Roma was bad. Qarabag seemed just as happy to oblige and nothing much happened for the next 20 minutes.

Nearly certain to return to the starting side is Alvaro Morata who played just 25 minutes on Wednesday having begun as a substitute.
Willian had now had a hand in all three goals, and he continued working until the very last minute.
It was a decision that frustrated Qarabag boss Gurban Gurbanov, who said: "Maybe if we were not a small country or small team the decision would've been different".
After a layoff from Pedro in the middle of the park, the Brazilian took a few strides towards the top of the box before hitting a thunderous volley into the back of the net to seal Chelsea's path to the last 16.
For now, it's time to turn attentions to the big game against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday. Diego Simeone's side will be motivated as well since they could conceivably still make the knockout round with a win and if Roma manage to somehow lose to Qarabag.
