Conte sees the Bournemouth cup tie as an opportunity to rest and rotate amid Chelsea's hectic festive fixture calendar and is likely to make widespread changes as seen in previous rounds against Everton and Nottingham Forest.
'These players are the future for Chelsea,' Conte said. '(Dujon) Sterling is a good player, Hudson-Odoi won the World Cup and Ampadu played against Everton.
'I must consider the young players if they deserve to have this chance. Ampadu is with the first team every day. Odoi deserves his chance to show he can play for this team for 10-15 years.'Won't that be a thing if Callum gets on for the Chelsea first team tonight.
