Eden Hazard is set to make his first start of the season for Chelsea as the Blues host Nottingham Forest in the third round of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Willy Caballero makes his competitive debut for Chelsea, taking the place of Thibaut Courtois in goal. Kenedy and Charly Musonda also make their first starts of the season for the Blues, with Antonio Conte making wholesale changes to the side that started against Arsenal.

The likes of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Davide Zappacosta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi have all returned to the starting lineup, with only Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas surviving from Sunday’s game.

Mark Warburton in the Nottingham Forest dugout, meanwhile, has former Chelsea man Michael Mancienne in his starting lineup as the Championship side look to spring up a surprise at the Bridge.
