Chelsea face Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup tonight and the team is set to be shuffled around. Antonio Conte has confirmed that he will be playing young players in the starting XI.

Here are 5 players who Conte should pick for the starting XI:

#5 - Jake Clarke-Salter

International Champions Cup 2015 - Chelsea v New York Red Bulls
International Champions Cup 2015 - Chelsea v New York Red Bulls

Cesar Azpilicueata deserves some rest and so, it should be Clarke-Salter who should be starting alongside Andrea Christensen and Antonio Rudiger in the back three.

The 19-year-old is highly rated at Chelsea and is tipped to be the long-term replacement for John Terry. The youngster has been at the club since the age of 9 and has spent just one season out on loan — last season at Bristol Rovers.

He recently signed a new long-term contract at Chelsea and was kept at the club by Antonio Conte despite several Championship sides trying to take him on loan. He was a vital part of the England team that won the Under-20 World Cup in South Korea in the summer as well.
