Conte rejected the suggestion that limited first team opportunities drove Nathaniel Chalobah, who joined Watford in July after making 10 Premier League appearances in seven years at Chelsea, away from the club.

Despite starting for his country over the global break, Hazard has been forced to wait his turn for Chelsea.

Ampadu joins Musonda and Kenedy, who Conte confirmed would face Forest in the cup.

Speaking to the press at Chelsea's Cobham training complex on Tuesday, Conte said; '"I think for Eden now is the right moment to start the game, and to try and play the whole game".

"Even after a week I think I had progressed with him", he told reporters.

"We managed very well his situation".

'I think Eden is a top player and he improved a lot. With him, we're managing the situation very well. "Now he's ready to start the game".

Hazard recently said Conte improved him within a week of his appointment in a comment which many interpreted as a slight on Jose Mourinho, rather than praise for Chelsea's Italian boss. Now it's important he's working very well, trying to adapt himself to this league because this league is not simple. The most important thing is to take the chance when it comes, above all for the young players.

"Eden is a top player". I think it can be a good opportunity.

It will be wing-back Kenedy's first start since he was warned about his conduct by the FA, fined by the club and forced to apologise for ill-judged social media comments he made during a pre-season tour of China. It's important for them to take this chance and show me I can count on them. He is focused, he working very well and he understood his mistake. "Now he's ready. He's ready to play and to show he deserves a space for the future".

He held up 21-year-old defender Andreas Christensen, who has made four appearances this season, as an example for other young players to follow.

"It could be a good opportunity for Charley Musonda and Kenedy".

"I'm sure Nottingham Forest wants the same".

Conte denied senior worldwide recognition at such a young age had heaped pressure on the player, who turned 17 last week. If the young players give me the posisbility to win.

David Luiz is suspended for the first of three games after his dismissal against Arsenal and will also be absent from the Premier League games with Stoke and Manchester City. He has good prospects to become a Chelsea player.
