    What are Chelsea's chances of winning the Champions League title this season? Tiemuoe Bakayoko is desperate to bring Champions League glory to Stamford Bridge and he believes Chelsea will have failed this season if they don’t win the Champions League.

    Bakayoko tasted success in Europe’s elite club competition last season, playing a prominent role in Monaco’s surprising run to the semi finals and hopes to do better with his new club.

    He recalled: "We could have handled the return game against Juventus in the semi-finals better, but in the end it was a good season for us in the Champions League because people were not expecting it. A few years before the club was in Ligue 2.

    Bakayoko initially struggled to cement a place in Antonio Conte’s midfield following his £35million move in the summer but is beginning to emerge as a key component of the Chelsea midfield engine room.

    Chelsea face the Azerbaijan Champions who the won 6-0 win earlier in September. The match must have evoke happy memories for Bakayoko, for it was during the match that that he scored his first goal for Chelsea, on his fourth appearance since signing in the summer.

    Speaking after the match back in September Bakayoko said: "I felt a lot of emotion. I was very proud to score my first goal and in front of our fans as well. It brought me great pleasure.

    Going into today's match believes Chelsea should be capable of challenging the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich this season.
    "Now the aim with Chelsea is to win this competition," adds the 23-year-old. "If you don't win it, it's a failure. I hope with this match against Qarabag we can qualify and continue on the right path."

    I just hope and pray that his injury will keep him out of the brave match. The guy can be a huge disaster. Chelsea are better without him.
