Chelsea v Nottingham Forest

Chelsea v Nottingham Forest live streaming: How to watch the Carabao Cup match.

Two former European Champions meet at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup.

The match looks like a formality for Chelsea, even if Antonio Conte shakes up his side significantly.

The Blues are third in the Premier League, and they are once again serious challengers for the title.

Chelsea appear to be in a three-way fight with Man United and Man City for the EPL crown.

Nottingham Forest, meanwhile, are 10th in the Championship and struggling to find consistency.

They’ve lost three and won two of their last five games. But those wins were impressive; away at Newcastle in the last round of the cup, and away at Sunderland in the league.

Conte reveals three starters

On Tuesday, Antonio Conte faced the press before the Forest League Cup match.

The Italian confirmed that Eden Hazard will start for Chelsea on Wednesday night.

Hazard has been slowly working his way back from injury which meant he missed the entire pre-season programme.

Stopping just short of confirming their inclusion in the Chelsea XI, Conte also strong hinted that Charly Musonda and Kenedy will be picked against Forest.

Elsewhere, Pedro is out while Danny Drinkwater is also missing with an injury.

David Luiz is suspended after his red card v Arsenal.
