Conte set to rotate for Nottingham Forest clash

Eden Hazard has praised the work of Antonio Conte, Jose Mourinho's successor at Chelsea, claiming that he improved him in just a week.

The Belgium worldwide is full of praise for the former Italy and Juventus boss, admitting it did not take him very long to help Hazard improve.

"I hope to be with him at the final step from his injury". I think we managed very well his situation. "In my career, I was injured a lot of times", Conte said.

Conte took charge of the Blues in the summer of 2016 and seemingly galvanised the squad after a awful 2015/16 campaign, clinching the Premier League title in his first season at the helm.

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

"I think for Eden now it is the right moment to start the game and try to play the whole game", Conte said. "He can continue to improve in his career and become one of the best".

Several activities are being organised to mark the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer 2017 in Mauritius. Every year on September 16, the World celebrates the global day for the preservation of Ozone layer as the World Ozone Day.

Kenedy is also set to make his first appearance since being sent from the club's pre-season tour of China.

"He knows very well what happened in China", Conte added.

"Now he's focused, he's working very well".

Belgian winger Charly Musonda will also be involved, after coming on in the Community Shield and against Burnley. "Now he's ready to play and to show he deserves a space for the future".

David Luiz is suspended for the clash with Mark Warburton's side after being dismissed for a unsafe late challenge on Gunners defender Sead Kolasinac and it appears very much as if it will be 21-year-old Andreas Christensen - and not £29m ($39.2m) summer arrival Antonio Rudiger - who continues to deputise for the erratic Brazilian.

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