John Terry drops major hint over Antonio Conte's team selection for EFL Cup

John Terry drops major hint over Antonio Conte's team selection for EFL Cup

Conte didn't want to explicitly state who would be joining Hazard in the starting line-up but he did bring up a couple of names voluntarily.

Antonio Conte has revealed that young Chelsea star Ethan Ampadu will make the bench against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday, joining Charly Musonda and Kenedy in the match-day squad. "For sure he made a mistake, but I think everyone in life can make mistakes". In my career, I was... With him, we're managing the situation very well. "Now he's ready to start the game".

This week he trained with the Chelsea first team and he could make his debut for the champions in the League Cup, having earned his first global call up with Wales squad at the start of September.

Conte, who will be without deadline day signing Danny Drinkwater for another month at least, also reiterated that Pedro's latest ankle issue was "nothing serious" but stated that the Spaniard needs time to recover.

"Our work is to try to improve every single player on a tactical and physical aspects, in their mentality", said Conte.

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.

"In my mind he could play as a number 10, he could play as a winger, and also in the future he could play as a wing-back", said the Italian.

'This season could be an opportunity for all the players to play games. You can see that that's the key to success: "work". Now it's important he's working very well, trying to adapt himself to this league because this league is not simple.

Charly Musonda is also set to be given a rare chance to impress in attack while Michy Batshuayi should lead the line up front with Willian and Alvaro Morata rested.

However, it took little time for Conte to reverse the London club's fortunes - at one period winning 13 straight games on their way to the title in 2016-17.

"I'm the first person to trust in the young players, to give possibilities to them - if young players deserve this chance, if they give me the possibility to win".

"He knows very well what happened in China", said Conte. We are talking about a great club with great history. I think he can continue to improve and become one of the best'.

Two of the young players likely to be given an opportunity against Forest, perhaps from the start, are Kenedy and Charly Musonda.

'He is a bit thin but now he is working a lot to improve his strength and be prepared for the big impacts in this league.
