Antonio Conte confirms Danny Drinkwater will be out for a month”

English football champions Chelsea's latest signing, midfielder Danny Drinkwater is to be sidelined for a month due to a calf injury, coach Antonio Conte said.

However, the 26-year-old winger came off the bench in the last two victories over Leicester and Qarabag to regain some match fitness and could be ready to start against Arsenal.

Eden Hazard comes on for Chelsea in successive games...

"I think Arsenal is one of the six top teams in England", He added.

Chelsea lost both the FA Cup final and Community Shield against Arsenal, despite having an impressive record against the Gunners in the league.

Conte has ruled Drinkwater out until after the next worldwide break.

'He's very close, he's very close to be totally fit and we have to continue in this way and don't forget I have to make decision for the team, for the players. When you play against Arsenal it is the same as when you play against [Manchester] City, Liverpool, [Manchester] United or Tottenham. They have a very good squad and have the chance to fight for the title. Victor Moses was sent off in the FA Cup final, Pedro in August's season curtain raiser.

Lawro's full predictions v triathlete Non Stanford. I hope this. Then during the game I think win the best.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea's monumental clash against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, the former Italy boss said: "He had a muscular problem in his calf".

Will Arsenal be able to stop Eden Hazard this season?

"It's all about the first goal". And in two, three weeks, four weeks, I don't know.

Probability of away win: 19%.

This is Arsene Wenger's 59th match against Chelsea, the club he has faced the most during his time in England.
