Danny Drinkwater is expected to remain sidelined for a number of weeks.

The midfielder, who recently joined Chelsea from Leicester, has been nursing a calf injury and has not played this season.

And boss Antonio Conte has revealed that Drinkwater is unlikely to make his Blues debut before October’s international break.

“He has a muscular problem in his calf and I think it is very difficult to see him before the international break,” Conte said.

“It’s a pity because he was starting to work and to improve his physical condition and adapt to our idea of football.

“It will be two, three, four weeks – I don’t know.”
