Antonio Conte has confirmed this afternoon that Chelsea’s latest signing Danny Drinkwater won’t make his debut for the Premier League champions until the International break, following a calf injury suffered ahead of Champions League clash against Qarabag.

Conte said“He had a muscular problem in his calf. I think it’s very difficult to see him before the international break. He needs time to recover.
