Chelsea book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League after an easy night in Azerbaijan.

18:50

Full-time: Qarabag 0-4 Chelsea

18:47

Three minutes of time added on here.

18:47

Azpilicueta has been moving slightly gingerly since receiving a kick a few minutes ago. Maybe a slight concern for Antonio Conte on what has been an otherwise perfect evening.

18:44

Willian has been wonderful tonight and he springs Morata through with another sumptuous defence-splitting pass. The Spaniard slows it down as he gets into the box and tries to cut inside his man before can't get past the defender.

18:42

Make that four for Chelsea. Willian caps his 200th appearance for the Blues with a fine strike, bursting past his man on the edge of the D before lashing a crisp strike past Sehic into the corner of the net. Easy.

Goal! Qarabag 0-4 Chelsea (Willian, 84)

Cesc Fabregas' penalty has made it three for Chelsea. They are cruising into the last 16.

18:33

Pedro frees Zappacosta down the right with a superb through ball perfectly into the Italian's feet. Morata is all on his own in the box waiting for the cutback but hos teammate's ball is pretty dreadful and is easily cut out.

18:32

Here's Chelsea's final change of the game with Danny Drinkwater onto replace Kante.

18:31

With Hazard off the pitch, Fabregas steps up to lash one into the top corner. But the referee orders a retake with Zappacosta judged to have rushed into the box before it was taken. No matter, the Spaniard instead slides it into the bottom corner on the retake to make it three.

18:29

Goal! Qarabag 0-3 Chelsea (Cesf Fabregas, 72)

18:28

Another penalty! A loose touch from Qarayev invites Willian to nick possession on the edge of the box with the Qarabag defender pulling on the Brazilian's shirt as he breaks into the box. The home side again feel aggrieved, but the referee points to the spot.

18:27

PENALTY - Chelsea

18:27

Morata now has it in the back of the net, but it won't count. Willian this time produces a superb ball, threading one across the pitch to find Azpilicueta's run into the box from the left. He unselfishly prods the ball across goal for his countryman to tap home but the defender has already been flagged for offisde.

18:25

Morata passes up a wonderful chance to make it three! Rudiger produces a wonderful pass to free the Spaniard, taking three players out of the game to leave his teammate with only the goalkeeper to beat inside the box. He takes a touch and looks to place it in the far corner but to veers the wrong side of the post.

18:23

Morata is almost slipped in straight away by Pedro but Garayev makes a timely sliding challenge to knock the ball out for a corner.

18:21

That will be Hazard's last action of the evening; Alvaro Morata is onto replace him for the final 25 minutes of this match.

18:21

Hazard denied a second! It's excellent work from Kante who finds himself on the edge of the box, sliding a cute reverse pass into Hazard who cuts inside, opening his body up to shoot for the far corner. Sehic denies him however, springing across goal to impressively bat the ball away.

18:18

Chelsea by the way have made their first change of the night with Gary Cahill onto replace Alonso. Azpilicueta has shifted out to play at left wing-back with Cahill taking his role in the backline.

18:16

Chelsea can do whatever they like at the moment; comfortably popping the ball off up and down the pitch. Qarabag seem satisfied in sitting back to absorb it, maybe fearing another hammering after what happened at Stamford Bridge in Stamford Bridge.

18:11

Rudiger wins the ball high up the pitch from Michel, moving it onto Willian in the final third but play is brought back with the Roma defender judged to have fouled the Spaniard.

18:10

Chelsea almost in for a third! Pedro brilliantly controls a ball into the box from Fabregas but Sehic is out quickly to block his effort on goal. The ball breaks kindly to Willian who has pounced on the rebound but Medvedev gets there first to knock it away? But did he use his arm? Play continues anyway and Qarabag clear.

18:07

Fabregas curls it straight into Sehic's waiting arms, however.
