Antonio Conte confirmed that Davide Zappacosta’s first Chelsea goal was indeed supposed to be a cross, but he was delighted with the Italian’s full debut. Zappacosta’s strike looked suspiciously as if he was aiming to cross rather than shoot and while they all count – Conte admitted the 25-year-old had told him that he was actually trying to pick out a team-mate.
"He told me he was aiming to cross," he confirmed in his post-match press conference."I think it was a good result. We start the Champions League in the right way. I saw the right commitment from my players. Great focus, great concentration from the start of the game".
"These are tricky games and we must pay great attention but I’m pleased for the great performance from our players. I think a lot of positive things for us and Batshuayi to score and Zappacosta on his first appearance at Stamford Bridge – he played very well. Hazard is trying to find the best form and we are happy to see him running on the field. A lot of positive things".
