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.
The England international joined Chelsea from Leicester City on a £35m move on Deadline Day, but he didn’t feature in the last Premier League game of the Blues against the Foxes.
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.
“It’s a pity because he was starting to work and to improve his physical condition. Now we have to move all these situations. And in two, three weeks, four weeks, I don’t know.”
