Hazard is yet to start a match for Chelsea this season as he continues his comeback from a broken leg suffered at the end of last season, but he is set to appear in Wednesday's Carabao Cup third round cup clash against Nottingham Forest where Conte could select the Belgium forward to lead a heavily changed side.

The Belgium worldwide made his first appearance since suffering a broken ankle in June in the Premier League win away to Leicester City on September 9. I trust Charly. It's important for the coach to trust a young player, but also important to have a good answer when the chance to play arrives'. In my career I was injured a lot of times and I have a bit of experience about this situation.

"I hope to be with him at the final step for the injury".

'Our work is to try and improve every single player. The most important thing is when the chance arrives, to take it.

Hazard spent two years under the leadership of Jose Mourinho, winning the Premier League, Europa League and EFL Cup before the Portuguese was replaced by Conte last season.

Kenedy has not played this term, having been sent home from Chelsea's pre-season tour of the Far East for posting an offensive message about China on social media during the squad's stay there.

"I think it is a good opportunity to see the young players that are training with us". I think we managed very well his situation.

"Now he's focused, he's working very well. Now he's ready. He's ready to play and to show he deserves a space for the future". I hope to be with him at the final step with the injury. He's a bit thin, but he's working a lot to improve his strength and to be prepared to make a big impact in this league.
