With a goal and two assists so far, the Spain worldwide has been one of the key components to Chelsea's strong start to the season under new manager Maurizio Sarri, in which they have won all of their opening four games.

For this season's contest, Chelsea are drawn with BATE Borisov, PAOK and MOL Vidi in Group L, for which The Blues' coach, Maurizio Sarri expected to rotate his squad, and the 27-year-old Moses is expected to be handed playing opportunities in the Europa League.

Watching the draw unfold on TV wasn't a pleasant experience for Alonso, although the disappointment will spur him on to do better this season.

"I didn't give any roadmap, but we knew he was going to play this match and I won't say any more".

Key to whether they can maintain their early momentum will be the form of Eden Hazard, who was linked with a move to Real Madrid over the summer after saying that "it might be time to discover something different" following six years at Stamford Bridge.

Eusebio Di Francesco who has so far only overseen one win in three Serie A fixtures is facing a tricky run of fixtures after the global break, including a Champions League group opener against European champions Real Madrid as well as a Rome Derby against arch-rivals Lazio.

"I didn't see Hazard at Madrid, he is very happy at Chelsea", Alonso told Marca. Unless the club had wanted to sell me, my wish was and has always been to stay.

Thibaut Courtois made his first start for Real Madrid on Saturday since making a £35 million move from Chelsea this summer.

Chelsea could very well do with making some money back on the managerial-front, having Conte on the payroll and the big payout to Napoli back in July.

"The day I leave football I will return to Spain but now I have three years left at Chelsea and I am very happy there".
