Chelsea manager Antonio Conte gave Danny Drinkwater a new chance in the last Premier League game against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge today.
The Italian manager was pleased when asked about the England international’s performance: “I think it is normal to have the right chance. – Conte said – He is starting to play with Chelsea, a great team. Danny today started the game, like the team, a bit slow but he improved a lot”.
“It is great for me and the team to have another option, when we play with three midfielders, to have another option is a vital importance”.
Chelsea signed Drinkwater after completing £30m move from Leicester City on Deadline Day.
