Ethan Ampadu impressed in Chelsea’s 2-1 Carabao Cup quarterfinal victory over Bournemouth on Wednesday.
When asked if Ampadu will play against Everton on Saturday, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said: “He’s part of the squad, not from the start, but after one month.
“He started to stay with us and he trains everyday with us. He’s part of our squad. I have to make the best decision but I can count on him.
“In the last game against Everton in the Carabao Cup he played in midfield, he played against Huddersfield and he started against Bournemouth in an important game for us. That allowed us to reach the semi-finals and it’s a great achievement for us.
“It means we’re doing a good job. Now it’s important to continue in this way.”
