Antonio Conte has confirmed that Eden Hazard will be included in Chelsea‘s squad for the trip to Leicester City on Saturday but Danny Drinkwater may not feature against his former side.

Hazard made his comeback from ankle surgery while with Belgium during the international break, coming on as a substitute against Greece before starting thes 9-0 win over Gibraltar which booked the Red Devils’ place at next year’s World Cup.

Hazard has been in training with Chelsea this week and Conte suggested the winger could feature at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

He told reporters on Friday: “[We don’t have] any injury problems. Someone will be tired but that’s normal. All the players are available and I’m happy for this.

“Eden is available. He is at least in the squad for tomorrow and he is improving a lot. He is working well to be ready. Now I can count on him. I have to decide the right moment and minute about him. 

“He is an important player for us.”

Another player who has been tipped to feature for Chelsea this weekend is Drinkwater, who completed a deadline day move from Leicester to the champions.

Drinkwater hasn’t played this season due to a minor groin injury, and Conte admitted the midfielder is not yet fully fit.

When asked whether Drinkwater could make his debut against his former side: “We are working with him and trying to make him in the best physical condition. 

“It’s normal when the transfer window, you know there’s the possibility of you moving to another team – it’s not simple. 

“He’s a good buy for us and is working well. He’s improved his physical condition. I don’t know when he’ll be ready to play.”
