Chelsea boss Conte says Kenedy will face Forest: He deserves second chance here

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is ready to hand Kenedy a new chance for their Carabao Cup tie with Nottingham Forest.

Kenedy is also set to make his first appearance since being sent from the club's pre-season tour of China.

The Brazilian was not played since making inappropriate social media posts, which Chelsea were forced to apologise for and saw the player given a formal warning by the FA.

"I think he knows very well what happened in China. For sure, he made a mistake," said Conte.

"But I think that everyone in their life can make a mistake. Now he's focused, he's working very well, he understood his mistake.

"Now he's ready. He's ready to play and to show he deserves a space for the future."
