Antonio Conte has revealed ahead of Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off game against Southampton that there are no fresh injury worries in the team.

However, the Chelsea boss has admitted that Danny Drinkwater is suffering a fresh groin problem and will be absent in tomorrow’s game.

Drinkwater moved to Chelsea during the summer, but due to injury worries, his Chelsea career hasn’t gone as planned.

“Danny is having an unlucky season,” Conte said.

“He started this season with a problem in his calf, then he continued to have problems.

“Now he is struggling with a problem in the groin. We are talking about a good midfielder, a good player. I trust him.”
