Chelsea boss Conte: Hazard will start against Forest

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will start Eden Hazard for their Carabao Cup tie with Nottingham Forest.

The Belgium international has made four substitute appearances for the Blues since recovering from ankle surgery in the summer.

"Yes, I think for Eden now is the right moment to start the game, and to try and play the whole game," Conte said.

"I hope to be with him at the final step with the injury. I think we managed very well his situation. In my career, I was injured a lot of times.

"Also I have a bit of experience about this situation. With him, we're managing the situation very well. Now he's ready to start the game and I hope to stay with him for the final step."
