"I hope to be with him at the final step for the injury".
"I think, last season, if you remember very well, Chalobah had the chance to play", Conte added.
The Belgium global has been on the bench for the Blues in their last three games, coming on late on during matches, though he now looks ready to start again.
Conte is in his second season as Chelsea manager despite speculation over the summer that the 48-year-old Italian was close to leaving Stamford Bridge. If a player, an old player, 36-years-old, makes me happy and helps me to win, I pick him. His last injury is nothing serious but he needs a bit of time to recover'. But for sure he has good prospects at Chelsea to become a Chelsea player. We play well, we won a year ago.
"If you are good enough to play with a great team, you play", he said, with Charly Musonda and Ethan Ampadu among those being considered tonight. I think, for the young players, it's very important to find the right path for them.
'But I think that everyone in their life can make a mistake.
'Now he's ready. He's ready to play and to show he deserves a space for the future'.
'You can see Charly's talent very clearly. "It's very important to work with the players". It's a physical league.
'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.
Striker Michy Batshuayi could start, with young players Charly Musonda and Kenedy also expected to be given first-team opportunities in a rotated squad. "Coquelin as well. Mathieu Debuchy is coming back slowly and he won't play against Doncaster".
'It's one of the four competitions.
Conte wants all his players to improve and says Hazard can get even better. Its not easy to face four competitions but tomorrow is a good opportunity to give a chance to some players who didn't play a lot. The most important thing is when the chance arrives, to take it.
One player who found his path to the Chelsea first team blocked is Michael Mancienne, who is in line for first Nottingham Forest start tonight.
"I'm sure Nottingham Forest wants the same".
Nottingham Forest also endured a tough time during the weekend, losing at home to Wolves and will be looking to bounce back from the same. That is normal if you ask to play regularly with a great club, then you must deserve to play. In the last game they beat Newcastle. "I have watched a lot of their games and the play good football".
