Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has suffered a calf strain in training.

The Daily Mail says Conte’s hands-on coaching style got the better of the Chelsea manager over Christmas.

The Italian got involved in running with his players at their Cobham HQ but pulled up with a calf problem.

It was nothing serious but said a lot about Conte’s style of coaching, as he adds a personal touch to training sessions by participating in drills from time to time.

Chelsea have won 12 consecutive games and are going for a 13th at Stoke on Saturday.
