Antonio Conte enjoyed his first win as Chelsea manager and handed a debut to big-money arrival Michy Batshuayi as Wolfsburger were brushed aside 3-0.

Chelsea lost the opening match of their trip to Austria 2-0 against Rapid Vienna on Saturday, but they were worthy of a comfortable triumph at the Worthersee Stadion, where Bertrand Traore put them in front and substitutes Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Nathaniel Chalobah added late gloss to the scoreline.

Willian was industrious and influential throughout and found Victor Moses to side-foot against the inside of the right-hand post from 15 yards, before the latter turned provider for Traore to hack wastefully over.

But the Burkina Faso forward broke the deadlock five minutes before half-time in slightly fortuitous fashion as a prodded effort from Willian’s cross ricocheted back into him off goalkeeper Alexander Kofler and into the net.
