The time has come: after playing only some minutes as a substitute against Qarabag and Arsenal, Eden Hazard is ready to start his first game with Chelsea in this season.

The Belgian star spent all summer recovering from a broken ankle injury and Blues boss Antonio Conte decided that tomorrow’s League Cup game is the right one to be back in action for real:

“I think for Eden now is the right moment to start the game and try to play the whole game,” he said ahead of tomorrow night’s game against Nottingham Forest.

“I hope to be, with him, at the final step for the injury. I think we have managed very well his situation. In my career I was injured a lot of times and I have a bit of experience about this situation.

“I think with him, we are managing the situation very well. Now he is ready to start the game and I hope to stay, with him, the final step.”
