Eden Hazard to start for Chelsea against Nottingham Forest - Conte

Chelsea vs Arsenal LIVE Premier League updates from Stamford Bridge

The Belgian global returned to scintillating form last season when he scored 16 goals and created five others in the Blues' Premier League title-winning campaign.

However, Chelsea fans will be pleased to see the 26-year-old winger is ready to be included in his starting line up for tomorrow's game against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard says that manager Antonio Conte drills his tactics into his team so strongly that they could actually play with their eyes closed.

"I think now it is very important for him to adapt to this league, because this league is not simple - it is a physical league". I trust Charly. It is important to trust young players, but also to have a good answer when the chance arrives to play. "With him, we are managing the situation well". "Now he's ready to start the game and I hope to stay with him for the final step".

Musonda has "really good prospects", added Conte, who may field the Belgian at wing back.

'Our work is to try and improve every single player. "He is ready to play to deserve a place for the future".

"He's working a lot to improve his strength for a big impact in the league. But he improved a lot and he can continue to improve a lot in his career to become one of the best". We know very well in England it is not very easy to face four competitions but we are going to try our best.

"I think Eden is a top player and he improved a lot".

Conte admits he's being cautious with Hazard's return as he wants to ensure his rehabilitation is managed properly after undergoing ankle surgery in the summer.
