Conte On Carabao Cup Vs Forest, Hazard, Musonda, Kenedy

Conte named Musonda in the Chelsea side to take on Forest at Stamford Bridge and the attacker turned in a superb performance which included a goal in a game the Blues won 5-1.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard says he improved after just a week working under manager Antonio Conte. He can not even overlook Kenedy, the player who many assumed would not play for the club again. He's strong physically, with good technique and personality. We must be pleased tonight because we saw a lot of our young players in this game'.

Charly Musonda scored on his Chelsea debut as the Blues eased past Nottingham Forest.

He said: "It's a tough game".

It was roughly 3am on Thursday morning in China when Kenedy marked his first Chelsea appearance since being sent home from the pre-season tour in disgrace with a goal against Nottingham Forest. If we answer like this, why not continue to give the opportunity to these players? I think the most important thing for the players is to be open to receive new information. "I think we have managed very well his situation and in my career I was injured a lot of times and I have a bit of experience about this situation".

As for the visitors, Mark Warburton's Nottingham Forest side are coming off the back of three defeats from their last four games in all competitions against Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Their history has been rather more tumultuous in recent years, sliding up and down in England's league structure before landing in their current place in the Championship, where they now sit mid-table eight games into the season. He is focused, he working very well and he understood his mistake.

"I think if you are good enough to play with a great team, you play".

"Kenedy played very well, " Conte said.

Chelsea's next midweek match is next Wednesday's Champions League tie at Atletico Madrid.
