Chelsea: Conte gives update on Kante, Morata, Drinkwater

Chelsea coach, Antonio Conte, has given update on his players N’Golo Kante, Alvaro Morata and Danny Drinwater.

Conte spoke at a news conference Friday afternoon ahead of Saturday’s away match at Crystal Palace.

In a series of tweets via @ChelseaFC, Conte was quoted as saying “Danny Drinkwater is progressing well with his recovery but we must be patient with him”.

“On Kante, it’s a muscular problem and he could be out for around 20 days but another scan is needed to understand more”.

The Blues manager also said he hopes to have Morata back for Roma.

Conte added that “what’s important now is to be focused on the next game and try to do our job in the best way”.

He, however, revealed that Michy Batshuayi is ‘in contention’ to start against Crystal Palace tomorrow.
