Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has provided an update on the fitness of Englishman Danny Drinkwater ahead of the Blues' Champions League clash against Qarabag FK.

Since Danny Drinkwater completed his mega move to Chelsea from Leicester City, he is yet to make an appearance for the Blues as he sustained an injury while training with his former club.

Drinkwater was an unused substitute as the Premier League champions beat his former club Leicester 2-1 on Saturday, September 9, but it appears he has picked up a fresh injury to his calf.

'‘Danny Drinkwater had a muscular problem in his calf and we are waiting to check the problem but only this, yes.

''I trust all my players in the squad. For this reason there is the necessity to rotate and play game-by-game,'' Antonio Conte said on Monday, September 11.

After missing out last season in the UEFA Champions League, Chelsea return to the competition with a tie at Stamford Bridge against Qarabag FK.
